Letter to the Editor: Call for conservation

By REBECCA GRAY

Editor:

With the Wilderness Act reaching its 43rd birthday this past month (it was signed Sept. 3, 1964), now is a good time to reflect on the progress we've made in preserving some of our special wild places, and consider the even greater challenges that remain in protecting America's wilderness for future generations.

While Congress has designated, and continues to designate, spectacular, unspoiled land for wilderness protection, often with bipartisan support, seven of every eight acres of the wildlands in our country remain unprotected by federal law.

As citizens, we must call for the conservation of treasures such as the Wild Sky in Washington and the Boulder-White Clouds in Idaho. Most importantly, we must be vigilant in demanding that our federal government carry out its duty to be responsible stewards of our public lands, lest we lose these amazing areas forever.
