This week an interview with Phil Hough of the Friends of the Scotchman Peaks Wilderness
In this interview Phil Hough, Executive Director of the organization, explains some of the current projects and the very real possibilities for this region to gain national protection this year.
Bio- regionally, Scotsman Peaks is also an outstanding example of cooperative community work. In the ten years of existence, this organization has built many political coalitions, working from the local to national level to protect the delicate ecosystems in this unique region.
The Friends of Scotsman Peaks Wilderness offer a variety of hiking experiences and educational programs for all age groups and they encourage local volunteers to become involved in maintaining and preserving this local treasure.
