The NW section of Honey Bee Trail was littered with limbs from yesterday afternoon winds. There is one tree down on this section requiring a chainsaw, but is an easy step-over. Opinions about logging Watoga State Park.
Here are some of the comments from the folks who use and love Watoga State Park. It is clear they do not want to see this wonderful park logged.
Opinions About Logging Watoga State Park
“What a shame. Before long we will have no mountains. We are known for our mountains. It all comes down to the all mighty dollar!””
“Nothing is sacred any longer, it’s all about money. So sad”
” I hope our legislature rethinks this terrible proposal to log in Watoga. I have posted about my long connection and affection for Watoga and hope it continues to be protected and respected for time unlimited.”
” We had a wonderful week hiking the beautiful trails that are right out your front door when you stay in one of their cabins. We hiked over 50 miles this week by combining different trails to form loop trails and were in many areas of the park. The beauty of nature is quite evident when you are deep in the woods and have a feeling of peace and contentment like no other! To even consider logging in this beautiful park is so wrong!! Watoga State Park should be maintained as it was created for people to get back one with nature. Once that is destroyed it can never be recreated. Logging should never be permitted in Watoga or any state park!!!”
