I would spend the day with Aldo Leopold, one of the developers and proponents of environmental ethics and conservationism. I would spend the day trying to get his viewpoint on contemporary environmental issues or get him to write a few artcles for this site 😉
I would have to choose Walt Whitman, author of “Leaves of Grass.” Not only did this man see the poetry in a single blade of grass, he dedicated his most famous collection of poetry to this notion, a collection which included his elegy for Lincoln. The collection attracted extreme controversy at the time, wikipedia – of all sites – shares this controversy extensively: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leaves_of_Grass
Whitman chose to – in a very stuck up era – to write in honor of nature, the body, the earth and sex. That’s my kind of activism.
I would spend the day hiking national parks with John Muir. Wow. How great would that be? I would probably choose Yosemite since I have never been there and he knew that park best.
