We are approaching the anniversary date of the government shutdown of the national parks. These areas have been set aside for the people of the United States. We must strongly resist government attempts to restrict access.

Edward Abbey was anti-Government control, as were many of the great environmental leaders. If government has their way, we would be more restricted in our access to the remaining small amount of wilderness. Many younger people do not have a clue about the seriousness of this situation, but I have seen first hand the effort to exclude people from national parks.

Image is great, and I find myself agreeing with the spirit of the message.

This has the feel of a Sierra Club greeting card.A beautiful and crisp defense of Nature and Conservation.

This looks to me like a picture meme more than a propaganda poster...

With just the quote, it seems almost like a motivational poster. I think a message against some kind of environmental damage, combined with the quote, would have brought some propaganda into it.

Nice photo, but I'm not a fan of the text placement
