Tom Bell, founder of the Wyoming Outdoor Council and High Country News, died on Tuesday. He was 92.
Bell was known throughout the West for his conservation work. In an interview with Wyoming Public Radio earlier this year, he explained that when he founded the Wyoming Outdoor Council in 1967, it was a radical undertaking.
“I really believe in clean air, clean water, clean land and taking care of it. And nobody had a thought about that at that time,” said Bell.
