Home Ground Radio with Brian Kahn
Home Ground Radio with Brian Kahn

The Wilderness Act became law in 1964, enabling Congress to set aside land “where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain.”  Few remember the days when timber mill unions and conservationists developed wilderness proposals and took together them to Congress. John Gatchell does, he's our guest on this episode of "Home Ground Radio." Part 2 of 2.

(Broadcast: "Home Ground Radio", 03/06/16. Listen on the radio or online, Sundays at 11:10 a.m., or via podcast.)
