From the text: 'Obviously an extremely professional task of development, research and management looms ahead. Moreover, to manage land and protect its resources in the true public interest requires involvement of an informed citizenry in many managerial and policy decisions. There is now underway a true test of American democracy as the tree and grass roots. No one person or organization can do this job alone. People from many walks of life are involved. And the anchor point rests in responsible men and women who know their land intimately, understand ecological processes and have reverence for the earth. There is no substitute for that.'
