From her first glimpse of Alaska as a young girl, Margaret "Mardy" Murie had a special connection to the Northland. After her Yukon wedding to naturalist Olaus Murie, Mardy joined her husband for years of wilderness adventure, becoming his partner in a lifetime of conservation efforts. For more than seventy years, Mardy Murie tirelessly championed the environment. Her work led to the founding of The Wilderness Society and the establishment of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. She has been known for years as "the mother of the conservation movement," and ultimately received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Narrated by Harrison Ford, this program concludes with John Denver performing "A Song for All Lovers," a waltz that he wrote for Mardy and her husband, Olaus.
