To encourage appreciation and conservation of wildflowers, wildlife, forests, wilderness areas, and other natural resources and cooperate with other agencies promoting these interests.

 

The glory of gardening:

hands in the dirt,
head in the sun,
 heart with nature.
To nurture a garden is
 to feed not just on the body,
but the soul.

--Alfred Austin
