Yosemite Jr. Ranger Pens Letter to Park Officials Apologizing for Accidentally Bringing Home Sticks

Yosemite Junior Ranger Pens Adorable-As-All-Get-Out Letter to Park Officials Apologizing for Accidentally Bringing Home Two Sticks

Little Evie recently returned home from a trip to Yosemite National Park and, much to her horror, she soon discovered that she had accidentally removed two sticks from their natural habitat.

Without a moment to spare, the Junior Ranger quickly stuffed the sticks in an envelope and wrote a heartfelt letter of apology to the park for her inadvertent violation of park rules.

snip...
The park ranger who received the letter says he sent Evie and extra Junior Ranger badge, along with a note commending her on her dedication to the preservation of nature.

For the record, it was the ranger who taped the sticks to the letter, not Evie. "They'll end up in nature," he says. "I promise!"

2. I used to go up to King's Canyon National Park

where I was a Joint Venturer in the Cave Research Foundation back in the 70s and 80s. We were exploring and mapping the long and complex Lilburn cave system. Park Rangers saw a couple of redwood pine cones in the Ford Bronco of my friend that I was bringing back as a souvenir and told me I couldn't take that out of the park, nor any other part of a redwood tree, even one that had fallen.

... we will be removing it soon.

9. How adorable.

Makes me feel guilty for how craftily I was eyeing the Rhododendron sprouts at the New River Park in WV during my visit a few years ago. Just as craftily as my WV in-laws were eyeing our Bluebonnets by our highways when they visited us here in Texas. But, alas, neither plant would have fared well if transplanted out of it's natural habitat and both are better off where they can be seen by everyone.

10. Endearing for sure

I only wish this kid's honesty and appreciation would rub off on the monied who would like to exploit our natural wonders.
