There are so many beautiful and wild areas in the state of Nevada, and yet many Americans are not aware. Fortunately, there are people who are passionate about protecting these unique areas, despite significant challenges in the form of development, water rights, and numerous other interests.
Here’s a great video from the folks at Nevada Wilderness Project (NWP). A few memorable quotes from the video:
“Wilderness is a place for relaxation and sanity…a place where I have always gone to get my bearings.”
“I love politics, and I love sleeping in the dirt.”
“As Americans we have the right to petition our government for change.”
“When it is about protecting your backyard wilderness, and protecting what’s best about America, we feel like that is one of the finest kinds of patriotism around.”
May the force be with you, NWP!
