(a) DESIGNATION OF WILDERNESS.—Certain lands comprising approximately 15,010 acres as generally depicted on a map entitled "Congaree Swamp National Monument Wilderness—Proposed", and dated July 1988, are hereby designated as wilderness and therefore as components of the National Wilderness Preservation System.

Any lands designated as potential wilderness additions shall, upon acquisition of any non-Federal interests in land and publication in the Federal Register of a notice by the Secretary that all uses thereon prohibited by the Wilderness Act have ceased, thereby be designated wilderness, shall be part of the Congaree Swamp National Monument Wilderness, and shall be managed in accordance with the Wilderness Act.
