Did You Know You Can Help Save National Parks?

Did you know you can help to save National Parks?

Our National Park land is being encroched upon year by year. Many folks think that their entertainment is far more important than saving these national landmarks and resources for future generations. Plus, it helps to maintain a more healthy environment.

Now days, there are power plants and other factories trying to move into national park territory, causing damage to the natural resources and wildlife found there. Also, many parks, including Yellowstone , are opening more and more venues to dirt bikes, four wheelers and snowmobiles. This causes much damage for the few minutes of excitement some people feel entitled to.

If you are wanting to help save our national parks and keep the environment around them clean and healthy, there is something you can do! It often feels like those of use far removed from these sites can do nothing, but now there is a small, practical way to get involved.

The National Park Conservation Association is making it possible for folks all around the country to get involved. You can hold a spring cleaning tag sale and donate any portion of your proceeds to the cleaning up of our national parks! This is a great way to do some spring cleaning, both for yourself and your nation! And for future generations as well! If you want to learn more about this easy way to help your national parks, look here .

Nice post! I'm always happy to see this kind of thing emphasized!

It's discouraging to know that there are so many people out there who think that the wild country and the natural world is general is just another disposable toy for their self-gratification. Anything we can do to help protect the natural world is a very good thing indeed!

thanks for stopping in guys. I am really looking forward to being able to help out in some small way, all the way from down here in TX. It is good to know that each of us doing some small part can hopefully help to spread the word.
