A "Natural" Legacy

A plethora of states would love to jump on the National Trail System’s bandwagon – from Washington, D.C. to Ohio, from Maryland to Indiana.

The pending National Trails bill that awaits action by the U.S. Senate, authorizes the National Park Service to study extending numerous trails and sites throughout the Eastern half of the country.

The Secretary of the Interior would be required to update the feasibility and suitability of extending four historic trails – the Oregon, California, Pony Express and Mormon Pioneer National Historic trails, sites rich in our country’s history.

A number of U.S. Senators have proposed various portions of this massive and, well, historic legislation.

The current administration has done extremely little to protect our country’s innate beauty and historical sites. Wouldn’t it be something if the politicians took it upon themselves to create a substantial legacy of protected trails and historical sites that future generations could appreciate and learn from?

What a legacy that would be.
