Exploring The Appalachian Trail: The Capital Area

Kurtis Sensenig introduces us to the agricultural heritage of the Capital Area while hiking the Appalachian Trail along the Kittatinny Ridge, near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  Local land use planning and conservation-oriented ordinances are critical in areas like this where housing development, roads, and trucking terminals jeopardize the A.T. experience.  The loss of intact forest also fragments wildlife habitat and is detrimental to water resources that millions depend upon.
