Arnold Bolle talks about his career as a forestry researcher, and describes the beginning of the movement to legally designate wilderness areas. He explains how the Wilderness Act changed the way the U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Bureau of Land Management [BLM], and U.S. National Park Service managed their lands, and elaborates on his various roles in the creation of public policy relating to forests. Bolle explains his philosophy on cultivating positive dialogue and relationships with private land owners and how to be a strong, democratic leader within an organization.
