Cave Vandalism-Need for Public Concern

Postby aa3jy » Jul 23, 2013 6:12 am

There has been some discussion on another forum concerning deliberate damage (graffitti and trash)to one of the springs in Deland,Fla to the point where park management has threaten to close the spring to the diver community.

May I suggest a State wide public service announcement be made available for distribution to public media concerning the affects of such damage to a natural resource.

To re-awaken this thread...did anyone else read the article in AT JOURNEYS (Appalachian Trail Conservancy magazine, Feb. 2014, pp 10-14) about graffiti and vandalism caused, not by punks, but by through-hikers? It seems there have been several incidents of vandalism, name painting, etc. by those who most use the Trail. What kind of mind looks at a pretty cave drapery or a rocky trail overlook and thinks, "this place would be perfect if it only had my initials spray-painted on it!"? :cave softly:
