Sierra Club Targets Four Areas of Natural Splendor for Urgent Protection – You Can Fight Global Warming by Supporting Them

Posted Dec 20 2008 5:48pm

Great Gifts That Help Protect The Wild

As a life member of the Sierra Club, I know that I am somewhat biased toward that organization’s programs and initiatives. The Wild Places program is no exception. Nevertheless, even if I were not a member and former leader of the Sierra Club, I would recommend the Wild Places program to you because of its goals and approach.

The Wild Places program has chosen four areas of natural splendor, all under varying degrees of protection from the United States government and jeopardy from the same. They are the Giant Sequoia National Monument, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Yosemite National Park and Acadia National Park. I feature them here in part because protecting them also means fighting the effects of global warming on account of their function within large natural systems, botanical systems in particular.

I could go on for hours about why each of these needs to be preserved in perpetuity but the special section of the Sierra Club website does it quite well. Visit

SierraClub.org/wildplaces

and consider a donation today. Purchasing carbon offsets is very important but through the Sierra Club Wild Places initiative, you can purchase a tangible piece of the planetary mechanism which gives us clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. I can’t think of a better way to start the new year than by keeping wild places wild.
