Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #472 – Jan 27, 2017



Roosevelt’s brand of conservation set the course that others would follow for decades. Its focus was responsibility and restraint in managing natural resources, and its opponent within the camp was preservationism (led by John Muir), which favored protecting the earth from the hand of man. The tension between management and preservation is present to this day in both natural resource agencies and the environmental movement itself.

—PETER BORELLI, Crossroads, 1988
