Earth Ministry religious leaders meet with Rep. Reichert about public lands

A group of clergy and religious leaders living in the 8th Congressional District met with US Representative Dave Reichert on November 5. The meeting emphasized the spiritual value of wilderness for the faith community and expressed thanks for the Congressman’s longstanding dedication to public lands – especially his hard work in designating and expanding the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area.

In explaining why people of faith value public lands, our religious leaders shared stories of laying down their emotional and spiritual burdens in the nearby Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area, participating in restoration projects that rely on the Land and Water Conservation Fund, and the importance of nature to young people in search of the Divine.
