Wildlands Philanthropy: The Great American Tradition

by

Wildlands Philanthropy: The Great American Tradition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Wildlands Philanthropy takes readers on a visually spectacular tour of natural landmarks from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego and around globe. With more than 175 color photographs and a large-format design, Wildlands Philanthropy is a book grand enough to tell the inspiring stories of people who saved extraordinary places. From Muir Woods National Monument to Acadia National Park, from beloved icons to obscure natural areas, the 40 parks, refuges, and sanctuaries featured in the book represent the incredible diversity of wildlife habitats that have been saved through private initiative during the past century. The amazing people who invested their passion and wealth to secure these scenic treasures come from every walk of life and every corner of the country, suggesting that everyone — regardless of means — can join the great American tradition of individual action on behalf of wild nature.
