Who We Are
Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength
that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing
in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance
that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.
-- Rachel Carson --
Protecting irreplaceable forests, farmlands, wetlands and wildlife for the purpose of enjoying our natural resources, open spaces and unique environment for present and future generations.
