The winter 2011 issue of National Parks Magazine as always has several articles of interest to fans of National Parks. Two articles are on topics which I have written about previously on this blog.
“The Spice of Life” tells the tale of the ginseng plant and the threats to its existence in our National Parks.
A second article entitled “In Good Conscience” relays the not often told story of the role played by Conscientious Objectors in our National Parks during World War II.
