The Stoneman Meadow Riot: Lessons of an Uprising
What's the right balance between public land use and preservation? We meet filmmaker David Vassar, who as a youth in 1970, visited Yosemite to make a nature film. He didn't expect to film an uprising of the young people that gathered in Stoneman Meadow after park rangers tried to enforce curfews to protect the land from overuse. Also featured are park rangers Bob Roney and Dean Shenk, who were there during that time.
