Saturday, August 22, a group of sign-carrying Democrats brought messages to the west entrance of Glacier National Park, hoping to deliver them to Speaker John Boehner and Rep. Ryan Zinke as they drove to Lake Macdonald Lodge.

Boehner and Zinke didn’t show up, but these 11 folks did show up because they knew their messages need to be heard, among them: Keep Public Lands in Public Hands No More Government Shutdowns—Montana Jobs Matter Climate Change Is Real—Glacier Is Melting Montana Is Not For Sale Climate Change Is Real—Act to Save Our Country

Plenty of passing carloads of park visitors did see these messages, honking their approval. These issues need urgent attention: Speaker Boehner and Rep. Zinke, are you listening?
