Protect your National Parks

I don't live in Arkansas but have visited many sections and the mountains, wildlife, and rivers and streams are just beautiful -- you should take steps to protect them from pollution and littering so that future generations can enjoy them in their wild state and become familiar with the wildlife that live there. It is truly beautiful country in the Ozarks especially and around Little Rock and Jacksonville.

Please stop cutting down the nice forests

Please stop the total clearing of land for neighborhoods and shopping centers and churches. We have so much concrete around and stores that no one uses so we need to have incentives to utilize and keep natural.
