Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge: Work We Are Doing
Sunday, June 3, 2012
The Lake Umbabog National Wildlife Refuge is a very popular spot for hikers and paddlers on the border of Maine and New Hampshire. It’s also critical habitat for wildlife like moose, bears and bobcats.
Shopping mall parking lots are full, store lines are long and FedEx delivery men are working overtime. Americans are by and large incredibly generous and thoughtful people and the Christmas season provides an outlet for that expression. Still, I can’t help but think that most of the fruitcakes, holiday sweaters and video games being wrapped up and put under trees over the next few days will only provide temporary happiness for their new owners after this holiday season has come and gone.
