Greetings from Shenandoah National Park

I’ve been going to Shenandoah National Park for almost 30 years. As a nature and wildlife photographer, I’m extremely concerned about environmental quality in general and air quality in particular. Air quality isn’t a stand-alone issue. It also affects water quality and livability and the enjoyability of the park itself. #cleanair4parks

Sincerely,
Jim
