Professor Char Miller Quoted in Article About the Weeks Act Centennial

Professor of Environmental Analysis Char Miller is interviewed in this New Hampshire Public Radio article about the 100th anniversary of the Weeks Act, which led to the creation of national forests in the eastern United States. “It established for the first time, especially on environmental issues, that the federal government and the states had the capacity to forge a new relationship and that new relationship was based on the federal government buying private land which it’d never done before and use that land to create national forests, which it had also never done before in the East," says Miler in the piece.
