The announcement marks 100 years of the National Park Service and looks ahead to the importance of the outdoors and nearby nature in next century of conservation.

“For 100 years, America’s parks have existed for all of us to explore and enjoy. From icons like the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone, to your neighborhood green space, the wild is where you find it. With opportunities for connection and solitude…. for extreme adventure and quiet reflection… there’s a little something for everyone,” says Mortensen in the announcement.

“In the next 100 years, we can build on this legacy of conservation. All Americans, no matter where they live, should have the chance to experience our public lands near and far. And it will take all of us to help protect them from threats of climate change. Please join me and the Sierra Club to get out and explore, enjoy and protect our planet.”

Mortensen’s work with the Sierra Club coincides with the release of the film “Captain Fantastic,” a story of a counter-culture father living off the grid in the deep forests of the Pacific Northwest with his six children. The film explores important themes including capitalism, and the growing divide between man and nature.
