Local Group Works On Problem Of Private Lands In Wilderness Areas
The U.S. Wilderness Act turns 50 this year and one challenge facing these lands today is the number of private inholdings inside them. Within the nationwide Wilderness System, about 180,000 acres are privately owned. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen spoke with Reid Haughey, President of the Wilderness Land Trust, which started in Aspen in 1992.
Reid Haughey is director of the Wilderness Land Trust, a Carbondale-based organization that aims to add private inholdings to the nation’s wilderness system.
