Why We Work On Public Lands
Roads, recreation, fire management and timber harvesting can all impact the quality of the air as well as the vistas we value in the Four Corners.
We must not love our land to death. Ensuring travel, recreation and fire management respect our cultural and archaeological resources, wildlife and landscape resiliency is essential.
Healthy lands create resilient watersheds, feeding and protecting healthy rivers. Fire, forest and recreation management can threaten rivers and fish with enhanced erosion, so should be managed with rivers in mind.
Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit.Edward Abbey
Biological diversity is messy. It walks, it crawls, it swims, it swoops, it buzzes. But extinction is silent, and it has no voice other than our own.Paul Hawken
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.Albert Einstein
