"Wilderness is a necessity ... They will see what I meant in time. There must be places for human beings to satisfy their souls. Food and drink is not all. There is the spiritual. In some it is only a germ, of course, but the germ will grow."

- John Muir, conservationist and founder, The Sierra Club

"If you know wilderness in the way that you know love, you would be unwilling to let it go.... This is the story of our past and it will be the story of our future."

- Terry Tempest Williams, Testimony

Living Awareness Institute:

Wilderness is truly our greatest frontier, both internally and externally. It's the place where the creative spirit bursts forth. It's the place where we can find ourselves, untamed--where we can discover and rediscover who we really are.
