We are indeed trying to keep out buildings, roads, airplane landing fields, mechanical vehicles…and all the things that make the wilderness not the wilderness. That often makes it look as though we are trying to keep out people because these 'things' would all bring people. But, as we see it, they would not bring them to the wilderness because the wilderness would no longer be there for anyone." --Tionesta native and Wilderness Act of 1964 author Howard Zahniser, 1957
