Today and tomorrow only, fellow intern Terray Sylvester and I will be guest blogging at the National Recreation & Parks Association Blog. The forum is called Y Become Involved?

Basically, we'll be discussing a big issue that public lands are facing: How to get young people involved in parks, recreation, and conservation activities. As with industries like farming and fisheries, parks are experiencing a "graying" trend. That means the average age of their employees is getting older and older, which is a problem if conservation and land ethic are to remain top priorities.

Drop by the blog, have a glass of ice tea and give us a few comments. I'm sure all you High Country News readers have a fair bit to say!
