Editorial: More than a shoestring budget is required for US NPs
President Theodore Roosevelt once said, “The nation behaves well if it treats the natural resources as assets which it must turn over to the next generation increased and not impaired in value.”
It is not surprising that the father of American conservation would believe this. His steadfast and tireless advocacy on behalf of our country’s natural wonders gave rise to our national parks. And even now, his legacy reminds us of our responsibility to care for places like Yellowstone and Everglades so they are there for our children and grandchildren to explore.
