Minnesota Environmental Issues Oral History Project
The 20th century has seen dramatic growth in efforts to conserve Minnesota's natural resources. This trend is not without controversy, however; the debate continues over issues such as timber wolf preservation, acid rain control and forest management policies. The Minnesota Environmental Issues Oral History Project interviewed individuals representing a variety of viewpoints on the conservation and use of natural resources. Narrators discuss their own beliefs and roles and those of various organizations in the environmental movement, perhaps providing a glimpse into the future of natural resources management in Minnesota.
