What would change if we understood natural lands as more important to us than electricity and cell phones, as crucial to us as clean water and air?
Jim Barrett III, a founding member of ACRES, wrote a paper for a 1964 Quest Club presentation. The paper, “Conservation Today,” provides a thoughtful and compelling case for land conservation that is very relevant today.
Barrett urges us to “temper our power with our respect for the life we do not understand and did not create, but with which we share this earth...that on its health rests our own. Our own numbers and power...demand we expand our ethical conscience to include the land and the life it supports.”
