Americans not enjoying nature

From NPR.org: Americans Spending Less Time in Nature

Since the late 1980s, the percentage of Americans taking part in such activities has declined at slightly more than 1 percent a year. The total effect, Pergams says, is that participation is down 18 percent to 25 percent from peak levels.

I’ve only been actively making trips to see the natural wonders of this country in the last 5 years.  Whenever I’m in a National Park, I’d say it seems a large percentage of them are foreign visitors.  I’m amazed at how few Americans actually take advantage of our amazing National Parks.
