As I have mentioned before, the Ventana Wilderness Alliance is hosting a “Wild & Scenic” Film Festival tonight. You may still be able to get a ticket. There is more information in today’s Land Use Report Blog, found at kusp.org/landuse.
For over a decade, the Ventana Wilderness Alliance has led grassroots efforts to protect the wilderness qualities of the Ventana Region, along the Big Sur Coast. VWA volunteers also contribute thousands of hours each year maintaining public trails in the Ventana back country. If you check the Ventana Wilderness Website, you can find out about the “Ventana Trails Forever campaign,” and read the endorsement of Robert Redford. By the way, I can’t promise that Robert Redford will be at tonight’s Film Festival, even though Robert Redford and film festivals do go together, and even though it’s absolutely true that Robert Redford is personally urging your support for the conservation work done by the Ventana Wilderness Alliance.
The Land Use Report often focuses on what I sometimes call the “human world,” the world we create ourselves. Land use decisions have a big impact on exactly what we do create. We build our world, however, within a world of Nature that we did not create, and upon which we ultimately depend. Think about getting involved in efforts, like those of the Ventana Wilderness Alliance, that help protect and defend that Natural World.
