Yosemite Junior Ranger Pens Adorable-As-All-Get-Out Letter to Park Officials Apologizing for Accidentally Bringing Home Two Sticks

Little Evie recently returned home from a trip to Yosemite National Park and, much to her horror, she soon discovered that she had accidentally removed two sticks from their natural habitat.

Yosemite Junior Ranger Pens Adorable-As-All-Get-Out Letter to Park Officials Apologizing for Accidentally Bringing Home Two Sticks

Without a moment to spare, the Junior Ranger quickly stuffed the sticks in an envelope and wrote a heartfelt letter of apology to the park for her inadvertent violation of park rules.

Dear Park Rangers, I am a Yosemite Junior Ranger. I went to Yosemite recently and accidentally brought home two sticks. I know I'm not supposed to take things from the park, so I am sending them back. Please put them in nature.

Thank you, Evie.

The park ranger who received the letter says he sent Evie and extra Junior Ranger badge, along with a note commending her on her dedication to the preservation of nature.

For the record, it was the ranger who taped the sticks to the letter, not Evie. "They'll end up in nature," he says. "I promise!"
