The Richmond Times-Dispatch ran an Op/Ed from John Warner, a retired 30-year U.S. Senator, in support of new America’s Great Outdoors initiative, aimed at safeguarding natural resources and promoting recreation nationwide:
By protecting and restoring our rivers we can connect more of today’s children to the health, education and recreation benefits rivers and their environs offer; and, we can improve our economy and quality of life….
Every American deserves to enjoy a healthy river. By making rivers the centerpiece of America’s Great Outdoors, the administration will ensure the rivers of our states will flow with beauty and vitality, enriching lives for generations to come.
