Abstract:

"A broad-based coalition of conservative southern politicians, countercultural activists, environmental scientists, sportsmen, devout Christians, garden clubs in Atlanta, and others came together to push the Coastal Marshland Protection Act of 1970 through the Georgia state legislature.

Led by St. Simons lawyer, Reid Harris, the coalition backed an act that set up a permitting process to control development and protect 500,000 acres of marshland. That coalition did not survive for long. It was a magical moment in the history of conservation, when allies as diverse as deeply conservative Governor Lester Maddox and an Atlanta hippie stood together"--
