Letter: Unequal preservation effort at North Star

Why is it that people can use North Star “Preserve” to land with their parachutes and hang gliders or have parties, wade the river and float kayaks and paddleboards, but I am forbidden to set up my painting easel beside the public walkway?

I agreed with the ranger who asked me to move; I want to preserve North Star. To save it, we must “lock it up.” But it seems that is impossible, owing to the hunger of the human imagination.
