Description

Robert Wolf recalls the 1959 controversy over the Kern Plateau in California’s Sequoia National Forest. He describes how recreationists and the Sierra Club opposed the timber sales proposed by business groups on the Kern Plateau. Wolf discusses being sent west to investigate the conflict. He describes the trip and his subsequent recommendation—which the U.S. Forest Service ignored—against the timber sales due to the poor timber growth. He concludes with a brief discussion of land use alternatives.

This interview about the Kern Plateau is similar to OH 227-048 in which the plateau is also discussed at length.

The audio for this interview is available at Archives and Special Collections, but has not yet been digitized.
