When a public organization makes an occasional misstep, it is forgiven. But when it makes repeated blunders in the face of consistent public feedback, well Seattle, we have a problem.

Many people agree, and so do many organizations.

Many of the voices speaking out today can find the natural wonders in our parks, like this phantom orchid. They will fight to protect its habitat, to ensure their children have a chance to understand its significance and experience its unique beauty.
