Malcom Beck talks about sustainable agriculture
The Texas Legacy Project, a cooperative documentary initiative supported by the Conservation History Association of Texas, aims to preserve the history of resource and wildlife conservation in the state through interviews with conservationists. The project began in 1995 when David Todd, a Texas environmental attorney, found that the early years of the environmental movement in Texas were poorly documented. Conservationists involved in the project include ranchers, farmers, politicians, scientists, landowners, citizen advocates, journalists, medical doctors, environmental attorneys, engineers, agency officials, and others, from every region of the state.
Interviews (1981-2008) with Texas environmentalists and conservationists chronicle the efforts and experiences of these individuals during the years 1960-2008.
