Wilderness Issues Lecture Series: Spring 2002

The series, sponsored by the College of Forestry and Conservation's Wilderness Institute at the University of Montana, brings together advocates, politicians, academics and agency staff in a leading edge assessment of the politics of wilderness and the future of advocacy. The series is offered each spring and is recorded live by the University of Montana. Selected lectures are made available via the Internet. Please note: In some cases, audio quality during the first few minutes is poor. This is caused by adjustments made to input levels by the audio technician during the live recording.
