Thanks to Polis for Wilderness bill


Last week, Rep. Jared Polis introduced the Eagle and Summit County Wilderness Preservation Act in Washington, DC. Designating Wilderness requires a daring and almost oxymoronic political act — one that contemplates and values future generations and the long-term over the immediate wants of a seemingly insatiable 21st century populace.

Thank you, Rep. Polis, for your vision — for your willingness to trade the votes of those who see Wilderness solely through the narrow lens of who can ride which toys where for posterity, for the good will of generations to come who will thank you for your prescience, and for the gratitude the earth emanates in Wilderness.
