The Unlikely Environmentalists of Missouri’s Ozarks

Ted Haviland dislikes the term environmentalist, but that doesn’t stop him from protecting water in Missouri’s Ozarks.

Among National Park Service rangers, the Ozark National Scenic Riverways is notorious as a near-futile assignment. To patrol 134 river miles, four major campgrounds, hundreds of miles of unauthorized ATV trails, and, between May and October, 9,000 debaucherous equestrians, there are a mere 16 law-enforcing park rangers.
