Radio Talks

Public News Service-NM: August 5, 2014

This week on Earth Matters, Donna Stevens interviews Nathan Newcomer, New Mexico Wilderness Alliance Gila Grassroots Organizer and a co-host of this radio program. We discuss Nathan’s two recent excursions, which have similar themes – wilderness – but in terms of destination, could hardly have been more different.

In late May, Nathan hiked the Gila River through the Gila Wilderness Area, and emerged from the forest on the 90th anniversary of the designation of the Gila Wilderness Area, the nation’s first such designation. A month later, Nathan traveled to Washington DC for “America’s Great Outdoors Week.” In the nation’s capital, he spoke with Senators Heinrich and Udall about the Gila Wilderness, the Gila River diversion issue, and the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act. He delivered more than 200 hand-written letters from local citizens, asking for wilderness and river protections.
