Many Wilderness scholars, historians, and managers are concerned that our increasingly multi-cultural society might not value wilderness in the future since most of the people that visit and work in wild places are European-American. Please respond to this concern from your own perspective. .

IN MY PERSPECTIVE, I believe, that many wilderness scholars, historians, and managers don't have any because they love it, treasure it, information to base their concern.

Besides, every time I come to Yosemite, I see a diversity of people who come to see the wilderness and are glad to have a place where they can return to, to find peace and to be part of the outside world. On the other hand, the fact that not many people from the multi-cultural society does not work in the wilderness might just be because of the absence of information in working in the wilderness. It can also be because these people don't know where to obtain the information concerning working positions in the wilderness.
