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. .

To me the young children and teenagers value the forests and national parks. If they could see what we see now then they would want to come back and maybe even work for the Forest Service. I think that

the Forest Service. I think that it's not only a certain culture that values the National Forest. There are a lot of other nationalities who also value the forests as well. I can understand that the forest people who work and take care of the forests want to see young people's curiosity in wildlife such as the forest. ESA is doing a great job of making that happen. Not only for young teenagers to visit the forests and take an interest in it, but to also learn of many things. I am glad to be in ESA II because they not only taught be about protocols, but also teamwork.

WildLink is a proud partner of the National Park Service, National Forest Service, and Nature Bridge.
