As a business lover and nature lover I find that protecting our natural resources is important for our survival as a species. We spend a good amount of the country's early days conquering nature and now we must move on to living in harmony with nature. Protecting national forests for recreation and our species health is important.
If you ever walked in the forest after a snow storm, or live in a rural area, you are likely more connected to nature than many city dwellers. It becomes a part of your life and who you are. If you enjoy it then you may spend a considerable time in nature oriented activities and reaping its many benefits. I encourage everyone to spend a little time in nature to appreciate it.
