Part of the solution, less of the problem

My family has been going to Yosemite National Park since the early 1920's and my personal love affair with Yosemite started when I was in high school. When I left the SF Bay Area to start my new life in Washington State, Mount Rainier National Park and Olympic National Park captured my heart as well. When I was nine, I had a brief encounter with Yellowstone National Park. These experiences with some of nature's most awe-inspiring environments along with the constant news of how we are severely damaging our mother earth drive me to be at least a small part of the solution (and less of the problem) by supporting the "watch dog" of our national parks. I was only able to contribute $15, but if everyone was able to do that, NPCA would have a better chance of protecting our parks. Oh yeah--one more thing! A friend and I joined a NPCA group last year (2012) to plant native species on reclaimed areas of Mount Rainier National Park--an awesome and rewarding experience!
