My special cause, the one that alerts my interest and quickens the pace of my life, is to preserve the wildflowers and native plants that define the regions of our land–to encourage and promote their use in appropriate areas, and thus help pass on to generations in waiting the quiet joys and satisfactions I have known since my childhood…
The environment is where we all meet, where we all have a mutual interest, it is the one thing all of us share. It is not only a mirror of ourselves, but a focusing lens on what we can become.
