"In a world so rapidly changing, keeping a small part unchanged is our gift of love, hope, and beauty to generations of people we will never meet. We hope that these generations in turn will find the value and solace of our precious places, and work towards their continued preservation. A future without these protected lands is too dark to contemplate."
- Steve Glow and Sally Baskett, Five Valleys conservation easement landowners, volunteers and donors.
