“This is the most beautiful place on earth. There are many such places.

Every man, every woman, carries in heart and mind the image of the ideal place, the right place, the one true home , known or unknown, actual or visionary.”

Edward Abbey

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

-Martin Luther King Jr.


Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson


Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

-John Muir


Think Globally Act Locally

-Sir Paul McCartney

“In wilderness I sense the miracle of life, and behind it our scientific accomplishments fade to trivia.”

-Charles Lindbergh


There are moments when all anxiety and stated toil are becalmed in the infinite leisure and repose of nature.

-Henry David Thoreau


In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.

John Muir

In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.



“Do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am – a reluctant enthusiast…a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it’s still here.”

-Edward Abbey

What if we were part of this lineage of great thinkers and influencers inspired by Nature?

What if our thoughts, words, and actions aligned with our values?

What if we understood that nature is not a luxury but a necessity?

What if we could secure for our children and our children’s children clean air, clean water, and preservation of nature and our resources?

What if we understood that nature is a medicine that can heal us and make us happier, healthier, and more creative?

What if as a society we viewed our current environmental challenges not as obstacles but as opportunities to innovate and reimagine everything we make and do.

What if we viewed climate change not as daunting, but as a global cue that it’s time for something different? Climate change isn’t a curse It’s feedback.

What if rather than waiting for governments to change we realized that in order to change governments we had to change corporations and in order to change corporations we had to change consumers and in order to change consumers, well…….we actually had to change ourselves?

What if we understood it is not economy vs ecology in competition, but Economy and Ecology together in collaboration as the path forward?

What if we choose to thrive together, rather than compete against?

What if we choose regeneration overexploitation? 

 What if our ideals were not distant shores but instead our guiding light?

  • What If Our Land…
  • What If Our Food…
  • What If Our Water…
  • What if Our Buildings…
  • What If Our Energy…
  • What If Our Eco-Systems…
  • What If Our Humanity, Our Communities, and Ourselves…

…where not only protected but reimagined and thriving?

wouldn’t that be the true ideal?
