America’s First Forest: Carl Schenck and the Asheville Experiment

This comment by Retired Smokey Bear reminded me that at the recent Forest Service Retirees’ meeting in Asheville, we were fortunate to have a screening of this film.

If you haven’t experienced this part of the country and its history, I highly recommend it.

It might be hard to schedule with our PBS outlets in the West, but I thought it was definitely worth watching.  Note that it was an official selection of the Colorado Environmental Film Festival, so at least some westerners found it worthwhile.

Here’s a link to the trailer.
