In this episode, I speak with Joe Scalia and George Wuerthner of the Gallatin Yellowstone Wilderness Alliance (GYWA) about their vision of protecting all 700,000 acres remaining roadless lands in the Custer Gallatin National Forest north of Yellowstone National Park in Montana. We discuss the history of the Gallatin Range, its ecological significance to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, the wildlife that can be found there, increasing population pressure and threats from intensive recreational interests. We also discuss the Gallatin Forest Partnership, consisting of The Wilderness Society, Montana Wilderness Association and the Greater Yellowstone Coalition and the disheartening "wilderness lite" option that they are putting forward.
