July 24 — Seekonk, MA
Exciting PR hit in today’s New York Times, in a column by Nicholas Kristof entitled, “Lost in Space” (pdf).” The column points out the long-lasting effects of environmental policies and argues that greater access to and use of protected wildlands is critical to increasing public support for the environmental agenda.
I’m honored that Kristoff considers the Sea-to-Sea Route the “greatest opportunity for a conservation legacy.” President Bush, or any other policymaker out there — give me a call if you would like to talk further.
And Mr. Kristof — You have an open invitation to join me at any point along the trail. Perhaps you can get away for a weekend in the Adirondacks or Finger Lakes — I should be there starting in October. You are welcome to bring your sonstoo.
