Yosemite National Park Facelift Yields Over 20,000 Pounds of Trash

I found this article to be shocking to say the least. America has set aside over 84 million acres of land to “preserve”, hence our national parks. After reading this article I had a few questions about our intentions of preserving something: What does is it mean to preserve a park?, Does the impact humans have on the parks take away from preserving it?, and Are we truly preserving the land when we leave a negative impact on it? http://www.nps.gov/yose/parknews/facelift2012.htm

About Joe Handley

I currently working on my Bachelors of Science in Biology and a minor in Environmental Studies at the University of Montevallo. I enjoy nature and how it works as a whole. Nature is a beautiful thing that Americans seem to take for granted on a daily basis. I would love to see people become aware of the natural phenomena, things happening beyond control of mankind, that occurs in nature.
