"Seeking the Greatest Good" airs on Monday, March 18th at 9 pm

The public television documentary SEEKING THE GREATEST GOOD chronicles the life and legacy of Gifford Pinchot (1865-1946), the first chief of the U.S. Forest Service and an early champion of "practical conservation." Pinchot (pictured) spoke to audiences across the country and used the media to spread the very new idea of conservation.

Although born of wealth and privilege, Gifford Pinchot (1865-1946) dedicated his life to public service — advocating for the sustainable management of natural resources. He championed the establishment of the National Forests and the U.S. Forest Service, where he served as its first chief under President Theodore Roosevelt. Pinchot believed in the democratization of national resources, and fought to ensure that a few powerful individuals could not monopolize these resources for their own financial gain.
