|Goose Prairie (in the
Cascade Range in Washington) was the home and retreat of William O.
Douglas. He called it, "The loveliest place in America", and he
wrote, "Goose Prairie is my place in a sense that Washington, D.C.
never could be. My roots are deep in the Prairie."
|The home of this great public servant - the protector of civil liberty and the environment - is now up for sale and unless steps are taken now to preserve this part of our Western history, it will be placed at the mercy of developers.|
|The Federation of Western
Outdoor Clubs believes that the Goose Prairie home of William O.
Douglas should be preserved for future generations and that the federal
government or the State of Washington should take the necessary steps
to purchase the property.
