The National Parks are owned by American People, NOT the Federal Government.
This is what Im most upset about, even people who would be willing to volunteer to help out for a short period of time cannot do that to help maintain the parks. In general I would think park workers and rangers did not choose they're jobs because they pay great, but because they enjoy and appreciate what and who they work for, the people.
The Parks system provide opportunities for people from all backgrounds and all ages to enjoy. I would argue for me personally they largely contribute to my American dream. Think about how other countries don't have the same brilliant resources and opportunities, where natural habitats are maintained and preserved by dedicated people. I hate to see this part of America suffer, and it concerns me that resources that cant simply be replaced are in fragile hands.
