  • Yosemite National Park

Many Wilderness scholars, historians, and managers are concerned that our increasingly multi-cultural society might not value wilderness in the future since most of the people that visit and work in wild places are European-American. Please respond to this concern from your own perspective. .

There may be many reasons why there may not be different cultures visiting the Yosemite park. I personally think they are not coming

to the park because there may not be signs that are showing how the park looks. Or another reason may be that they're working and never have time to come and relax. They might also never [have] heard of this park even though it's big. Maybe the parks and the wilderness are not inside of them, and they just don't care. I think by adding more signs and letting people everywhere know how wonderful this park is, they all [will] come. Maybe telling them about the wildlife would interest them even more. Also telling them about the different flowers, trees, and waterfalls.
