Ep. 7 - Public Lands Policy & #FixOurParks
Updated: Aug 3
Marcia Argust directs Pew’s efforts to restore America’s parks, working with a team of data and policy experts to address the deferred maintenance backlog plaguing the National Park Service. Argust was previously a project director with Pew’s U.S. public lands program and senior legislative representative for the Campaign for America’s Wilderness. She guided policy on Pew’s land protection efforts, and coordinated diverse stakeholders in campaigns in several states, and helped to enact several major public lands and recreation bills.
Marcia joins the Broken Laces Podcast to discuss the importance of addressing our National Park's deferred maintenance, how she arrived in D.C., and what other public lands issues we need to address.
