The outdoors lies deep in American tradition. It has had immeasurable impact on the Nation’s character and on those who made it’s history…. When an American looks for the meaning of his past, he seeks it not in ancient ruins, but more likely in mountains and forests, by a river, or at the edge of the sea…. Today’s challenge is to assure all Americans permanent access to their outdoor heritage.
