Royal Rangers

Thursday, March 17, 2011

The Royal Rangers are to be commended for their sensitivity to the community's environmental and safety concerns. Eventually their piece of property which was sold to the San Bernardino Mountains Land Trust will be part of our National Forest. How appropriate as the United Nations has declared this the International Year of the Forest.

Tom Tidwell, Chief of the U.S. Forest Service, has written: "We are guardians who have an obligation to protect and restore our world's forests, grasslands and wetlands, all of which are the source of clean air and water, the protectors of fish and wildlife habitats and the greatest assets to mitigate the effects of global climate change." (SB Sun 2-17-11)

During this International Year of the Forest it is time to collaborate in order to protect our natural resources. The Church of the Woods can take the lead in partnering with county staff, environmentalists, business and neighbors by rethinking its project in Rimforest. Does the Church need to look elsewhere to build the flattening project they want or will they redesign the project, so it is appropriate for our mountain terrain and community plans and policies? The Church of the Woods can be a visionary leader for the International Year of the Forest.
