#WILDERNESS50 - #YOURWILDERNESS IS THE SOUL OF AMERICA

I look at wilderness as the soul of America. Our recent ancestors crossed it in covered wagons, handcarts, and by horseback; trying to get to a better place where money could be made and families raised. Most of our present wilderness lands, although phenomenally breathtaking, were too harsh, steep, and remote for taming by these settlers. As our population levels rapidly grow, our generation and those to come are so fortunate that the idea was advanced and embraced to set these special places aside for us to be reborn; to forever keep the soul and heart of America alive!

I don’t have to be in a wilderness to experience its gifts. Just knowing that it is there in perpetuity gives me inspiration to know we are doing the right thing. So lets ‘pay it forward’! May future generations say thank you and carry on the inspiration of wilderness! — Lauren Mermejo, Sage Grouse Project Coordinator, Nevada State Office 

BLM Nevada has stewardship for 45 wilderness areas covering over 2 million acres and another 2.5 million acres of wilderness study areas.

Brando’s athleticism was critical to his acting talent; his physical strength and muscular control gave him extraordinary range on stage and screen.Dance lessons with Katherine Dunham when he was a young actor in Manhattan augmented a native flexibility. “He moved like a panther”, according to one fellow actor, and astonished people with his ability to imitate anything - even a cash register.
