There’s been no more powerful force in defining American identity than our longstanding, often heroic efforts to preserve our natural landscapes. Gary brings a vibrant, celebratory spirit to his conservation discussions, reminding audiences of how important nature has been when it comes to defining key aspects of our national character, from patriotism to spirituality. As celebrated naturalist John Burroughs once said: “We may not go to church as much as our forefathers. But we go to the woods much more.”
