The "our" also extends to future generations. Congress specifically intended to preserve the flora and fauna. While I didn't like everything in the ORV rule I thought the premise of the intent was correct.
Never forget recreational use by today's visitors is not the primary mission or intent of CHNS. Recreating here doesn't give anyone (myself included) more ownership of the Seashore.
"Except for certain portions of the area, deemed to be especially adaptable for recreational uses, particularly swimming, boating, sailing, fishing, and other recreational activities of similar nature, which shall be developed for such uses as needed, the said area shall be permanently reserved as a primitive wilderness and no development of the project or plan for the convenience of visitors shall be undertaken which would be incompatible with the preservation of the unique flora and fauna or the physiographic conditions now prevailing in this area."
Enjoy the fellowship of cleaning up the beaches. I have a long term commitment off the island this weekend. But rest assured I will continue to pick up as much plastic as I can carry every single time I go to the beach.
