Our public lands comprise almost 30 percent of the total lands of the United States. In this podcast, Freemuth discusses the role these parks, forests, wildlife refuges and other lands play in the American psyche. We value them for scenic beauty, recreation and biodiversity, energy resources, forests and rangelands. We fight over what uses should have priority almost constantly, yet attempts to do something different with the lands, either sell them off or transfer them to states to manage, always seem to go nowhere. During the early days of our nation, we compromised about what do so with them and today we increasingly try to collaborate over their future uses.
