New National Forests Book from Senior Fellow Char Miller
Jul 19, 2016
America's Great National Forests, Wildernesses and GrasslandsPinchot Institute Senior Fellow Char Miller has recently completed a new illustrated celebration of our greatest National Forests, from Alaska to Florida. For more than a century, America’s National Forests have proved an environmental gift and cultural treasure, our spectacular backyard. Under the management of the US Forest Service, this system of public lands encompasses 193 million acres of mountains, prairies, rivers, and canyons—much of it undiscovered, but accessible for hiking, kayaking, fishing, and winter sports. Officially published with the US Forest Service, this book features the thirty most notable National Forests—while also celebrating more than one hundred different national forests in forty-four states— from the White Mountains of New Hampshire to the Olympics of Washington. Unlike the national parks, Americans can use these lands for all manner of recreation, truly earning these tremendous resources the moniker of "America’s backyard." Featuring photography by Tim Palmer and a foreword from Bill McKibben, this book is a treasure for all readers who use and cherish these lands.
