Idaho Celebrates 50th Earth Day With One Of The Original Activists
Fifty years ago today as air pollution choked America’s skies, and oily, oozing rivers – like one in Cleveland – caught fire and burned, a senator and 20 college students decided to make a change.
One of those students was Bill Mauk. He grew up in Pocatello and joined a group of 20 young people who engineered the first Earth Day in 1970. On the 50th anniversary of that groundbreaking day, Mauk joins Idaho Matters along with Rocky Barker, special correspondent and longtime environmental reporter at the Idaho Statesman Rocky Barker.
