Other Plans | Connie Harvey

Other Plans host Abby Gierke talks with conservation legend Connie Harvey. Connie was one of the founders of the Wilderness Workshop, created in 1967. Along with her two friends, Dottie Fox and Joy Caudill, the three "Maroon Belles" were successful in protecting more than 400,000 acres of wilderness land in the Roaring Fork Valley, including doubling the size of the Maroon Bells Wilderness area, protecting the Hunter-Fryingpan, Collegiate Peaks, Raggeds and West Elk wilderness areas. Connie was inducted into the Aspen Hall of Fame in 2006. At 91-years old, Connie has that same spunk and determination that helped her survive the Andrea Doria Shipwreck, pen a column for the Aspen Daily News, protect wild lands, and of course, run a working cattle ranch that is still in operation today.

Host Abby Gierke interviews locals about what they do for work and how it affects their lives. This show airs on the third Wednesday of every month.

Abby is an occasional DJ and brilliant interviewer.
