Everything we do at Juniper Ridge is informed and inspired by John Muir, and he is one hell of an awesome style icon too.
This year, Juniper Ridge has selected fourteen western wilderness defense organizations to focus our donation efforts on.
Public Lands From 1870 onwards, American westward development began to change its focus from private development, to management by the federal government of the remaining public lands.
