Description
In 1970, American had just celebrated the first Earth Day, and Jim Voegeli had just turned 15. After attending an Earth Day meeting for high school students hosted by Aldo Leopold Foundation member Emily Earley, he came away feeling that he had a responsibility to the environment. Jim decided to produce his first radio program as an educational effort, weaving together viewpoints on the importance of wild places from various conservationists in Madison and campers in northern Wisconsin, as well as sound effects that Jim recorded. NPR aired this half-hour program as a special on July 19, 1971.
