Dear Whoever it may concern,

Dear whoever it may concern, Please take the environmental issue seriously, specifically on the West coast Where I live in Washington I see the effects of Climate Change, Deforestation, Coal/Oil trains and dumping first hand, and I can say it’s sad to see our local environment deteriorate, As a conservationist/hiker in the Pacific Northwest we are at mercy of these detrimental environmental issues. With proper guidance and management from the United States Forest Service and other Government agencies, we can help protect our pristine forest in the Pacific NorthWest. In an effort to protect the forest I want to become a wildland firefighter for the forest service when I graduate high school. The Department of Natural Resources has done a good job replanting and sustaining our natural resources of timber in the Pacific Northwest. Thank you for taking my ideas and problems to consideration.
