Look to the future
December 8, 2009
“All we want is what we have now,” shouted a protester of the Hidden Gems Wilderness campaign. Any Wilderness supporter would totally agree – but in the future there will be more roads, more logging, more mineral extraction. It just won’t be happening in the lands protected by the Hidden Gems. In those areas, there will be more trails and more people, undoubtedly, but it will be as close as we can get to “what we have now” – and future generations will thank us profoundly for it.
