Our parks are full of trash — and it costs us

If you have ever visited a local, state, or federal park or forest, this is for you. Whatever the reason for visiting, we all are provided beautiful outdoor areas for recreation provided to us through public land. We pay for this public land with our taxes. Since we are paying for this land, I would like to point out that we are wasting our own money. Trash! It is everywhere in our parks!
