"Wilderness Under Siege"
With George Wuerthner
 
George WuerthnerGeorge Wuerthner, Wilderness Watch's Advocate-Organizer, is traveling the country to raise awareness about Wilderness and the threats facing it. "Geo" is talking about the challenges facing Wilderness, helping people better protect the Wildernesses in their backyards and around the country, and organizing against congressional and administration efforts to weaken or repeal the Wilderness Act. We hope you can join us at one of the events during Geo’s tour!
