People impact environment

Our national parks have a litter problem.

And a human waste problem.

Because of the government shutdown, people have been visiting parks, filling trashcans, and urinating and defecating on the side of the road because of closed bathroom facilities and vault toilets that are too full to accept more waste.

Politics aside, this situation is rich with teachable moments.

Which teachable moment would you choose?
