New alliances have come together to add 300,000 acres to the Idaho  Wilderness. The last wilderness in Idaho was added over 20 years ago. Citizens from diverse interests are finding a new common ground in working together to create wilderness in their states. Idaho is a terrific success story. Rick Johnson tells us why.
