We live in an unprecedented era where conservation is second to personal promotion. We no longer think about protecting delicate geological wonders and instead think first about how we can exploit these treasures for personal gain on social media. Now more than ever, we need to rise up to the challenge of preservation and the safeguarding of our planet. The purpose of this page is to educate and raise awareness through principles of responsible stewardship for our public lands.
All of these factors, as well as others, have contributed to the destruction (sometimes irreversible) of our public and private lands. Careless actions have led to closures and increased restrictions. We all should be committed to encouraging and promoting better wilderness ethics for a positive future.
