Note to self: Google before you leap.
A while back, y’all remember when we donated to the ferrets? Well, really we donated to the Defenders of Wildlife, but y’all know what I mean. (There’s a reason I’m not linking to it.) Yes, I donated, too.
Now, of course, I find out they’re one of the top seven anti-ATV-access groups in the country. Dammit. I can not believe I did that.
The irony is, my kids have a strong bond with nature because of ATVing. They’ve seen views a lot of people in this state don’t get to see. They’ve watched trails being rerouted to not interfere with a beaver damn. Rabbit hutches. Deer. Moose. Snakes. Foxes. They can recognize so many different animal signs. They would never leave trash behind on the trail and quite often pick up what others have left. They have an appreciation for nature they wouldn’t otherwise have.
Now I have to bury that windbreaker…bury it deep, then bury the shovel. :doh:
