Discusses how Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt has long advocated an environmental policy of bioregionalism: setting aside huge patches of land to protect whole ecosystems. How his idea may soon be tested with the California Desert Protection Act, a plan to preserve more than 6.3 million arid acres by creating three national parks and 71 wilderness areas; Efforts by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) to win support for the bill.
