Petition to Establish More Nature Reserves and a State Park in Starke County, Indiana

  • by: Peter Scott
  • recipient: Board of Directors for the Starke County Economic Development Foundation

This petition is asking the Starke County elected representatives to take action to establish more natures reserves in Starke County as well as to seek the creation of a State Park in Starke County. This petition also asks that the nature reserves and possible state park be actively monitored by Park Rangers and/or Reserve Rangers for Crime (e.g., Violence, Drugs and Alcohol) as well as to protect and preserve the reserves and possible park from littering and wildfires.

Our natural world contains bacteria that is necessary for human beings to feel well. When we isolate ourselves too often or for too long, we can begin to feel depressed. To feel a psychological connection to nature in a safe environment can be one of the best healing processes a human being can ever know. Also, it should be noted how a diverse wildlife in natural, wooded areas can prevent invasive species which are quite harmful to agrilcultural crops. When a certain species such as deer can overpopulate an area, causing traffic accidents, a small wolf-population that is monitored and controlled can create a safer prevention of deer over-population then hunters sometimes can. There is another petition I have created asking for a public registry for hunters and land owners with hunting land they'd like to offer for free or at a price to hunters.

Please understand that the natural world should not be left only to hunters, when there are people throughout our communities who have no intention of owning firearms yet who wish to enjoy the healing aspects of the natural world. Please enact the policies of this petition for a better, brighter future of Starke County.
