Feature articles in the Spring/Fall 2019 issue include a discussion of how a law aimed at easing urban housing shortages unintentionally transformed ski resorts, a brief history of the Wilderness Management Research Unit, and a review essay on the changes to the timber and forest products industries in Nova Scotia. Other articles look at movies about Native Americans filmed on national forests and grasslands, an assessment of the National Environmental Policy Act on the 50th anniversary of its passage, and the story of a conscientious objector’s wartime experience working on a national forest during World War II. Lastly, you can learn what it’s like to attend a small-town festival that celebrates its turpentine history and read about early forest researcher Thorton Munger.
