"The care of the earth is our most ancient and most worthy and, after all, our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it, and to foster its renewal, is our only legitimate hope." - Wendell Berry

It is well documented that ecologically healthy lands are more productive and resilient to stress. Such lands engender greater economic health for the human communities reliant on those lands, via direct commodity production and ecosystem services. These services include clean water and air, productive soil, carbon storage, hunting, angling and other recreational uses, aesthetics, and other benefits to human communities. The Western Landowners Alliance represents landowners and managers across the North American West banded together in dedication to assuring the land is whole, healthy, productive, and maintains a place for their families to prosper.

“To waste, to destroy our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed.”
― Theodore Roosevelt
