"Wilderness Under Siege"
With George Wuerthner
George WuerthnerGeorge Wuerthner, Wilderness Watch's Advocate-Organizer, is traveling the country this fall and winter 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! 


George is a well-known writer on conservation issues, having published 38 books and innumerable articles, essays, and opinion pieces. He’s given hundreds of presentations around the country on Wilderness, wildfire, livestock grazing, wildlife protection, and other public land issues.
