Maintaining wilderness for future generations is essential

OUT-Mueller-Utah

By Ranger Steve Mueller, Ody Brook Nature Sanctuary

Jenny Jo, age 1, with me in 1981 exploring SE Utah. I continue to explore wilderness areas there since my first visit in 1973. This past summer (2016) Jenny Jo accompanied my wife, Karen, and I to explore this magnificent treasure. Wilderness in the region should be protected so others can take their children to explore when they are young and again 35 years later. We have made many visits with our kids during those 35 years. Maintaining pristine country for future generations is essential for reasons Aldo Leopold articulated well for recreation, science, and wildlife. Places with quiet solitude lacking modern day development is increasingly difficult to find. It is up to current generations to maintain wilderness areas for unique species that require them for survival as well as for our human generations that will follow us. I discovered a new species of moth in the area and I am sure many other new species await discovery. Since 1974 I have presented a program titled “Wilderness – Unique Treasure” about Utah. One is scheduled for May. It has been a lifelong effort to ensure future generations have this region to explore in its pristine health.
