I am a lifelong lover of the great outdoors and nature. I always feel closer to God when I visit a National Park, our natural cathedrals. The experience is truly spiritual for me. These are the places where one's spirit can soar. The National Parks are my heritage and the significant heritage of all Americans. We must be great stewards of this precious, important gift and do everything we can to protect them. We must protect the parks against the polluting and looting of their resources (air, land, mineral and water). Future generations must have the opportunity to experience these wild places of scenic beauty. I joined NPCA because I want to do all I can to help our National Park System survive.
