Ding Darling National
Wildlife Refuge



Wonder What Mother Will Say
When She Finds He's Had It Clipped?

"Ding" Darling was among the first to recognize the need to conserve our nation's natural resources. Unbridled clear-cutting, without replanting, was standard forestry procedure when "Ding" drew this 1921 cartoon. It exemplified Darling's style: an important message combined with sufficient humor to catch the reader's attention.
