A pivotal moment in environmental history


September 6, 2012

MILFORD, PA — There will be a reading of Stephen Most’s play “Forces of Nature” at Grey Towers National Historic Landmark on Saturday, September 8 at 5:30 p.m. It portrays the great debate about a pivotal moment in America’s conservation history: Gifford Pinchot, Theodore Roosevelt and John Muir had the mighty task of deciding which lands to preserve, untouched, for future generations, and which lands to conserve, to use sustainably, to benefit all the people of America into the future. Witness the courage, valor and boldness of each as they set aside hundreds of millions of acres of land in America for use by the public— even though at times their means, methods and philosophies conflicted.

Tickets cost $75, which includes wine and hors d’oeuvres at Grey Towers Finger Bowl. Email info@greytowers.org or call 570/296-9625
