13 years ago I retired in Salt Lake City and started hiking often around southern Utah. I couldn't believe the number of cows everywhere. I started to look into it and over time came to believe that public land grazing is the single most damaging activity to the environment in the Intermountain West. And that taxpayers have to subsidize the ranchers to deplete the land this way was obviously nuts. I started a publishing company to try to help create awareness through the power of pen and story because I thought most environmental organizations were not able to get much done without greater public awareness. Except for Western Watersheds. They keep getting results. I am a big fan.

I'm primarily familiar with WWP's work in the Southwest. The organization has used a judicious combination of on-the-ground research, public pressure, and litigation to improve agency management of public lands in the region, especially with regard to management of livestock grazing. WWP is "lean and mean," using donations to good effect in advancing the protection of resources on our public lands. When you give to WWP you get a large bang for your bucks. My spouse and I have been donors for several years and plan to continue to support the organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

...encourage WWP to continue to fight the good fight. If the organization chooses to expand its efforts, I would encourage slow, measured expansion, so as to assimilate new programs or geographic coverage effectively.
