In the early 1960s, member of the U.S. Forest Service met with executives of the popular "Lassie" television series to discuss ways in which conservation could be applied to the story ideas for the show. By 1964, the Wrather Corporation changed the cast of the show by removing Lassie from her television family and placing her with Forest Ranger Corey Stuart, played by Bob Bray. Plots of the show began to emphasize wildlife management, forest and wildlife research, and wilderness management. Filmed on national rangeland, the "Lassie" episodes were produced with the cooperation of the U.S. Department of Agriculture
