Opinion—Be cautious of your impact while enjoying natural spaces

Aiden Popour September 14, 2020
One of the main things that drew me to NMU was all the natural beauty surrounding the city of Marquette.

However, seeing all these people out hiking and exploring has caused me to wonder about the effects of recreation on natural spaces.
