People don't know about the park

To the editor:

How about it -- teachers, town boards and clergymen, does your students or people know about the history and future of the Adirondack Park? The future of the park is being considered in many places.

Maybe you could ask forest rangers, EnCon officers, state officials and APA, to give talks in schools. After all, it's going to be their park. I think there are people and students that don't realize what's going on.

I hiked back to a remote pond and caught four nice trout. No one goes there. This is one idea, or example, that we will lose if state and EnCon build new snow-machine or ATV trails into wild forest areas.

I also think trappers and hunters that care the most about the park, and animals, are the most restricted from it.

I was raised at a time when venison and fish were a big part of the meals.

I would like to see the deer and moose built back up to where they used to be.

I'm thinking of people and students in the future. I'm hoping they can hunt and trap like I have done. It's over for me. I'm 73. We need tourist and ATV trails, but, not in wild forest.

There are people that think by bringing the same atmosphere that is in Central Park, tourists, black top trails, park benches, easy access and money to our small towns and wild forest, that this will solve all their problems. In my opinion, if you mix New York City and wild forest together, you will end up with their problems. What do we do now? Good or bad, we will pay for it in the future -- good or bad.

Thank you.
