When I talked about "The Importance of Saving Natural Areas" at the Sierra Club John Muir Chapter, the members fully recognized all the values natural areas have, no only for us as people, but for the survival of all life on this planet. Yes, I've talked to Wild Ones members, Ice Age Trail members, Audubon members, and Sierra Club members. But what about all the rest of our citizens? Do you know how your life is more survivable because of natural resources? Do you relate to the natural world as a part of your life or as an alien environment to be tolerated? As speaker and writer I'm happy to reacquaint you with the natural environment.
