We need to develop a new stewardship ethic for our National Park

Regarding the story "National Park superintendent: 'I don't think there are rabbits' in prairie area prepped for summer restoration work," July 28 SanJuanJournal.com:

Thanks for getting this information out! I have been very disturbed by the NPS use of toxic chemicals in the park. I came across a "POISON" sign near the Visitor Center a couple of years ago ... I think they are required to warn people for the first few hours after spraying. Yet I increasingly hear about people with environmental sensitivities who cannot tolerate exposure to toxic chemicals and have terrible reactions if exposed.

Between the poison and the killing of rabbits, we need to develop a new stewardship ethic for OUR park!
