Detailed Product Description
Full Title: The North Cascades: Hearings before the Subcommittee on Parks and Recreation of the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs, United States Senate, Ninetieth Congress, First Session on S. 1321

Washington D.C., US Government Printing Office, 1967. 8vo, pp xxvi, 1103. Original green printed Paperback. Near Fine.

Report on hearings to consider S. 1321, a bill to establish the North Cascades National Park and Ross Lake National Recreation Area, to designate the Pasayten Wilderness and to modify the Glacier Peak Wilderness, in the State of Washington. 

The Chair of the Subcommittee on Parks and Recreation opened the hearing by noting that the North Cascades "has long been recognized as one of the most scenic regions in the nation," and providing a brief overview of the history of efforts to protect the area, which began with a National Park proposal from the Mazamas in 1906. This is followed by a statement of support from Secretary of the Interior Stuart Udall, and then testimony from a hundreds of interested parties. Conservation organizations and concerned individuals argued that the area needed the additional protections afforded by National Park Status, while many local chambers of commerce, sportsmen's clubs, and individual business owners argued of it remaining a National Forest so it could still be used for broad recreational and economic purposes, including hunting, fishing, and (most significantly) logging. The hearings make interesting reading, as they illuminate the full range of interest groups, concerns, and considerations involved in designating a new National Park.
