"And, the best thing of all/ if we take care of these places/ we can have them forever/ our shared, magic spaces."
So ends this wonderful Seuss-esque journey, narrated by children, into some of the 110+ million acres of designated American wilderness that we have to enjoy. Award-winning filmmaker Michael Ramsey's short, beautiful film celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act which ensures that we will have places "...where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain."
We’re at a critical moment -- our wild places are facing huge challenges from mining, drilling, and climate disruption. To protect our wild heritage, we need a huge chorus of voices calling on our leaders to stand up for our forests, coasts, rivers, deserts, and mountains. Find out ways you can join this fight.
