  2. 2. About This Presentation I am a big fan of nature and parks and protected areas in the USA. Here are some of my favorite examples of conservation champions and links to recommended reading, viewing and listening across the very social web. Comments are welcome and so are embeds, likes and shares. - Ron Mader, September 2015 (Las Vegas)

  5. 5. Who will gainsay that the parks contain the highest potentialities of national pride, national contentment, and national health? A visit inspires love of country; begets contentment; engenders pride of possession; contains the antidote for national restlessness ... He is a better citizen with a keener appreciation of the privilege of living here who has toured the national parks. - Stephen Mather Photo @ National Park Service
  6. 6. I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see - John Burroughs Photo @ Library of Congress

  14. 14. Visitor centers and other locations where visitors gain information in parks are viewed as old fashioned. They are not friendly to the ways in which more tech-savvy visitors gain information once in a park, or to increasing amounts of information that is available to visitors before they come to a park. - National Parks Conservation Association
