Today, the loss of plant and animal species is as great as the end of the dinosaur era some sixty five million years ago! The winter recovery period our forest plants and animals is being disturbed by noisy snowmobiles. Most of us feel responsible to help protect nature and reduce this impact.   These organizations give us the opportunity to make a difference to protect the environment.
