Working to preserve in perpetuity is a great inspiration. We are not fighting a rear-guard action, we are facing a frontier. We are not slowing down a force that inevitably will destroy all the wilderness there is.

We are making it. We are not dealing with a vanishing wilderness. We are working for a wilderness forever.
