No one reads this blog to hear about politics, but if we regular folks don't stand up and say "whoa" we soon may not have neat places like Shawnee Forest and Magee Marsh to go get our orchid and warbler "fix."
One fellow environmentalist said his wife chastises him, saying that our efforts are as futile as "watering rocks."
That may be, but I believe that little by little the reasonable man speaking the truth, can make a difference.
After all... look how water eventually wore away the rock in several of our western states: behold the Grand Canyon.
So, please call your state Rep. and Senator, and tell them you value our State Parks for the natural resources we can see, smell and hear.
Ohio's parks make up only 1% of Ohio's landmass. Let's do our drilling, cutting and mining elsewhere, and preserve these areas, as intended, for our children.
