After retiring from a 31-year Forest Service career that included positions as district ranger, staff officer, forest supervisor, and regional director, Bill Worf co-founded the group Wilderness Watch, under whose auspices he investigated environmental conditions at California's South Warner Wilderness. In this video, Worf describes environmental damage caused by the grazing of cattle and sheep at Pine Creek Basin. And he explains how rural social pressure can lead Forest Service employees to approve livestock management that favors ranchers, while being detrimental to the environment.

This video is an excerpt from Bill Worf's interview in WESTERN TURF WARS: THE POLITICS OF PUBLIC LANDS RANCHING ( westernturfwars.com ).
