“Who would not rise to meet the expectations of the land?”
– Henry David Thoreau
Our connection to the land is invaluable. It replenishes and inspires us. It motivates and teaches us. It is vital to the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. Despite how much we love the land, conservation takes action and the timing has never been more critical. According to the Land Trust Alliance, 50 million acres of land in America will be lost to development in the next 25 years. That’s over 5,000 acres a day.
