"Thirty years ago many of us involved in the Wilderness Act expected to retire with the ability to look across the country at the legacy we labored to leave for our grandchildren, and to find it secure and intact. Instead, I find myself now unable to relax as I see that intended inheritance seriously threatened."
"Our Wilderness System is unequaled anywhere in the world, but our work's not done. We face devastating encroachments on designated Wilderness with the four federal agencies not preserving the wilderness character of these lands. Wilderness Watch is standing up for the vision we began working on more than 50 years ago. That's why I joined Wilderness Watch and serve as a member of the board of directors."
"Our family is most grateful that Wilderness Watch works so hard and so effectively to keep alive my father Howard Zahniser's dream that the National Wilderness Preservation System should be truly wild in perpetuity."
"Enclosed please find my membership renewal plus a little extra. As a longtime USFS Wilderness ranger I know well the need for your continuing presence and activism on behalf of designated Wilderness. As a seasonal employee, I have a front row seat to the Agency's feeble commitment to Wilderness."
"We support Wilderness Watch because it means people have a voice. It's hard to make a difference as one individual. We make change when we join together with one voice."
