Lauren Danner at the Washington Native Plant Society
February 12, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Come meet Lauren Danner, author of Crown Jewel Wilderness: Creating North Cascades National Park, and discover the story behind Washington’s spectacularly majestic third national park. She chronicles how concern over natural resource agency policies—one favoring tourism development and the other promoting logging in national forests—plus conservationists’ activism and skillful political compromise, eventually led to its creation 50 years ago in 1968.
