System is Fractured

When politicians can on a whim remove protections and rulings (as we know first hand here on the Rancocas Creek Water Trail) there is an issue w a system that is fractured and needs systematic reforms. While the essence of conservation is multi-use, clear-cutting old growth forest is not the essence of conservation. Conservation believes in using land sustainably to preserve it for future generations, rather than allowing it to be exploited and lost forever.
