Managing Air Tours in Our National Parks

air_tour.jpg

On This Green Earth, we speak with Vicky Ward, Overflights Program Manager for the National Park Service.

Along with the increased number of feet hiking through park lands, the number of aircraft flying the local skies has also increased. And, with that comes sources of air and noise pollution that impact the parks.

Ward will discuss what Air Tours are, how they impact the national parks, and the role she is playing in developing and overseeing the Air Tour Management Plan.
