PILIPINAS SIERRA INC. - ASOG
 

PURPOSES OF THE ORGANIZATION
1. To promote the protection of the environment among members and the public in general and to advocate the preservation of irreplaceable wildlife, wilderness areas, scenic trails, and old growth forests, wetlands and marine ecosystems and to explore and enjoy the wild places of the earth. 

2. To promote the outdoors and trail hiking tradition in the Philippines and bring as many people as possible in direct contact with mother nature, so that by themselves, they will form through these experiences, the commitment of preserving and protecting the environment.  



CARING FOR THE WILDERNESS
The beauty of wild places could be their undoing as they attract us to them -- leaving them touched by human hands and eventually less than wild.  We are consuming wilderness at an alarming rate, using it and changing it as we do so.  Though we sometimes act otherwise, the mountains don't exist for our amusement.  They owe us nothing and they require nothing from us.  As mountaineers traveling in the wilderness, our minimum charge for this privilege is to leave the place as we found them, with no sign of our passing.  We must study the places we visit and become sensitive to their vulnerability, then camp and climb in ways that minimize our impact. 

The privileges we enjoy in the mountain bring responsibilities.  While we tread softly softly in the mountains, it's also time to speak loudly back in town for support of wilderness preservation, environmental protection programs in our community.  As mountaineers, we need to be activists as well as climbers if we want our children to be able to enjoy what we take for granted. 

CLIMB  THE  MOUNTAINS   AND GET THEIR GOOD TIDINGS.  NATURE'S PEACE WILL FLOW INTO YOU AS SUNSHINE FLOWS INTO TREES.  THE WINDS WILL BLOW THEIR OWN FRESHNESS INTO YOU AND THE STORMS THEIR ENERGY, WHILE CARES WILL DROP OFF LIKE THE AUTUMN LEAVES.--john muir
