"Nature has a way of speaking to all of us, of calling us out under the open sky to listen to her 'various language.' To the born scientist, her call is a challenge to know and to probe. To woodsmen and campers, she is a friend providing materials to use in woodcraft. To those among us who think beyond the immediate present, she is a rich environmental heritage to protect for generations to come." — William Hillcourt
