About Amazing Earthfest

Celebrating National and State Parks, National Forests, Monuments and Public Lands of the American West.

The Earth does not belong to man; Man belongs to the Earth. … All things are connected. … Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.

Chief Seattle (1776 – 1866)
