The National Forest Service has set aside acres of land that are preserved naturally for wildlife and recreation. These plots of land are natural areas purchased and preserved for the benefit of plants, animals and people. In order to keep these areas clean and natural people must follow the rules and guidelines for this land. When it comes to recreational activities there are many activities that are “environmentally friendly”. Hiking, bird watching, horseback riding and bicycling are some examples of activities that are not damaging to our environment. Boats, ATV's and other vehicles can be damaging to the land and the air quality. When it comes to natural lands we need to be conscious of our activities and follow the guidelines with our recreational activities.
