Today on Your Call: What can we learn from people who fought to preserve open space in the Bay Area?

  

On today's Your Call, we'll rebroadcast a conversation we had about the film Rebels with a Cause.  It’s about a group of citizens starting in the 50s through the 70s who fought to preserve open space next to the big city.  What’s important about our wild lands?  How would our urban areas feel different without wilderness around them?  And how can we keep those areas protected for the future?  That’s on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and You.

Guests:

Nancy Kelly, director of Rebels with a Cause

Amy Meyer, activist who helped preserve the Golden Gate National Recreation Area
