The Hatfield legacy: "deep and wide and wonderful"

Document Actions

Nice job praising Sen. Mark Hatfield (HCN, 9/5/2011). In 1974, we started the Environmental Center at Oregon State and one of our first recruits was Andy Kerr, who quickly quit school to dedicate his life to saving Oregon wildlands.  Andy did a hell of a job, and still does.  But I will never forget the huge impact his working relationship with Sen. Hatfield and his staff had in winning wilderness designation for many unprotected roadless areas that we enjoy today.  The Hatfield legacy is deep and wide and wonderful in Oregon.
