The pledge of wildlands

Jose’s pledge:

I am for wilderness.

I’m for protecting the places close to my home and close to my heart.

I’m for rugged mountains and pristine forests.

I’m for cleaner air and water.

I’m for protecting wildlife habitat and species.

I’m for keeping our wild heritage alive.

Wilderness makes me happy, helps my community and protects the environment — and I want a better future for the wild places I love.

I am for wilderness. Are you?

– Jose Arroyo

What David Brower once said

“To me, a wilderness is where the flow of wildness is essentially uninterrupted by
technology; without wilderness the world is a cage.”
David Brower, Environmentalist and
first executive director of the Sierra Club
