This Land is Your Land, this Land is My Land…
During a recent trip to San Francisco, I experienced some wonderful natural areas: Land’s End in Lincoln Park, Marin Headlands in the Golden Gate National Recreational Area, Muir Woods National Monument, the Armstrong Redwoods State Nature Reserve.
I found myself pondering what all these uncommonly beautiful areas have in common: commitment to the common good. At different times in different places, determined individuals stepped up, joined together, and persevered to make certain these areas would be preserved and maintained for everyone to enjoy.
I am grateful… and mindful of our shared responsibility to protect the treasures entrusted to us.
