Because Conservation Matters

“Without natural resources, life itself is impossible. From birth to death, natural resources, transformed for human use, feed, clothe, shelter, and transport us. Upon them we depend for every material necessity, comfort, convenience, and protection in our lives. Without abundant resources prosperity is out of reach.”
- Gifford Pinchot

“Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land.”
- Aldo Leopold

"Despite all our accomplishments, we owe our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact it rains."
- Paul Harvey
