This chapter contrasts travel and outdoor activities in the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountain areas with the ongoing cultural debate over the teaching of Darwinian evolution in public schools. The experience of nature and the tools of reason offered by a pluralistic and inquisitive intellectual orientation are seen as an antidote to a polarizing dogmatism. And public education must be equipped to provide the next generation with ecological literacy.

Keywords:   evolution, science education, pluralism, dogmatism, ecological literacy
