Done.  Including all Los Padres National Forest wilderness boundaries 
(of which there are ten).

I've also sent the suggester my "ten steps" for using the data source 
he pointed me to.  We've never met, but now OSM community is that 
much stronger.

Now I'm finding additional correct wiki pages to update (one is 
already updated with notes of this upload).

Thank you for your offer.  That also shows good community, Mr. Patrick.

Next appears to be a harmonization of the LPNF boundaries themselves 
and a sharpening up of the leisure=nature_reserve boundaries with 
landuse=forest.  That's getting better, but not yet quite done.
