Within the Wildlands Project
there is a strong movement to affect what happens on private
land. In early 1995, Appalachian Science in the Public Interest
(ASPI) hosted the Forest Commons meeting in Richmond, Ky. Although
ASPI is not a Wildlands Project affiliate, Heartwood, who helped
host the conference, is. Several Wild Earth writers and staff
attended the meeting.
Mary Byrd Davis, WE associate
editor; John Davis, WE editor; Wendell Barry, a popular deep
ecology writer; and Eric Freyfogle, a contributing author to
WE , were all in attendance.
The next WE featured articles
by Al Fritch, Wendell Barry, and Paul Kalisz, all of whom had
addressed the meeting.
