  1. You sparked my curiosity to track down Udall’s record. His accomplishments are impressive. Here’s what Wikipedia says about him:

    “Udall served as Secretary of the Interior from 1961 to 1969 under presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson.

    Under his leadership, the Interior Department aggressively promoted an expansion of federal public lands and assisted with the enactment of major environmental legislation. Among his accomplishments, Udall oversaw the addition of four national parks, six national monuments, eight national seashores and lakeshores, nine national recreation areas, twenty national historic sites, and fifty-six national wildlife refuges, including Canyonlands National Park in Utah, North Cascades National Park in Washington, Redwood National Park in California, the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in New Jersey, and the Appalachian National Scenic Trail stretching from Georgia to Maine.

    Udall played a key role in the enactment of environmental laws such as the Clear Air, Water Quality and Clean Water Restoration Acts and Amendments, the Wilderness Act of 1964, the Endangered Species Preservation Act of 1966, the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act of 1965, the Solid Waste Disposal Act of 1965, the National Trail System Act of 1968, and Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968.”

    Thanks for posting a reminder of what a dedicated individual can achieve!

  2. Yup, it’s too bad how nature and wilderness is treated. Generally speaking I know there are many trying to save it, from ourselves. Yet too often, it seems, far more wish to see it concreted and blacktopped over.

    Thanks for your “likes” on my blog, “Needle at Sea Bottom”. I’m trying to improve my writing and posting, through WordPress Blogging 101. .. Cheers Jamie.
