IOUF supports the maintaining of public lands
Dolly Sods Wilderness, West Virginia, August 2016— IOUF President, Dr. Sandra Hurlong and Mike Curtis, Director of Social Responsibility, toured Dolly Sods Wilderness in the Monongahela National Forest that is part of the National Wilderness Preservation System located in Grant, Randolph, and Tucker Counties, West Virginia. They were there to make a public statement for government agencies to continue maintaining public lands.
In 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Wilderness Act that created the National Wilderness Preservation System, which included four types of lands managed by the U.S. Government: National Forests, National Parks, National Wildlife Refuges, and Bureau of Land Management. Upon signing the Wilderness Act, President Johnson stated, “If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them something more than the miracles of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it.”
IOUF is dedicated to providing charitable funds that support environmental issues in the USA as well as projects in Mexico, Brazil, India, Europe and Japan.

In whatever you do, you should be careful about the ending and the beginning. What is done well inevitably turns out well, and what starts well finishes well. If you are as careful of the end as of the beginning, then there will be no failure.
