MARCH 10, 2006
Several years ago I ran across a little piece about some endangered spots around the country. I saved the website www.scenic.org and here is what they had to offer.
Endangered site listing:
1. The Entire State of Oregon
2. Washington DC
I thought this was fascinating. I have been to Oregon several times and have marveled at the rugged coastline, vast acres of forests, and the pristine rivers (or so they appeared at the time.) Our nation's capital will one day be built out so the only green space will be the mall and the park. I would not have thought of either of these places for my list. However, the next eight make more sense to me. But, what do I know; this is the reason to access the information provided by others.
3. The Marsh Islands of Georgia
4. Red Rocks of Arizona
5. Narragansett Bay Rhode Island
6. Coyote Valley California
7. St. Croix Valley Scenic Corridor on Minnesota Wisconsin border
8. Harpeth River Valley Tennessee
9. Lynville Mountain Landscape Virginia
10. Woodberry Watershed Forest Maryland
Here they are? Do you live near any of them? Maybe now that you know what they are, and where they are, they can become a part of your environmental stewardship.
