"We've got to somehow stabilize our connection to nature so that in 50 years from now, 500 years, 5,000 years from now there will still be a wild system and respect for what it takes to sustain us.

— Dr. Sylvia Earle, Oceanographer; 2009 TED Prize Winner

"Mother Nature is just chemistry, biology and physics . . .you can’t negotiate with her, and you can’t spin her and you can’t evade her rules. All you can do is fit in as a species . . .or get kicked out."

-- Rob Watson, Innovator, Green Building Pioneer, Founder of LEED

"Place is what takes me out of myself, out of the limited scope of human activity, but this is not misanthropic. A sense of place is a way of embracing humanity among all of its neighbors. It is an entry into the larger world."

-- Dr. Robert Michael Pyle, World-Renowned Lepidopterist, Field Biologist and Author
