“I’ve been going to Acadia National Park just about every year since I was born. It’s where I took some of my first steps. Like, I’m just obsessed with hiking… I just always loved Acadia. That you would run into deer and like, just everything was so calm and peaceful. And just every view of everything was just incredible. It was just the best.” — Shoshanna Weissmann

In Episode 167 of District of Conservation, Gabriella interviews Shoshana Weissmann. When not focusing on occupational licensing reform or working for a public policy think thank, Shoshana hikes and traverses National Parks. 

Shoshana chats how Acadia National Park inspired her love of the outdoors, the best altitude sickness remedies, her close encounter with a grizzly bear in Montana, why it’s wrong to politicize National Parks and bad to restrict public lands access, her involvement with The Conservation Coalition, free market environmentalism, and much more.
