There may be several historical monuments, cultural and   natural   heritages   around   our   house,  tole, community and village. We must preserve and promote them. We should observe our old temples, inn, stone tap, canal, hautara, rest house, forest, etc and take necessary action to protect them. If we do not preserve our forest, the wildlife and birds will be extinct from there. We cannot get valuable herbs.

Farmers cannot get firewood and fodder for their cattle. Forest helps to create rainfall. Our rivers may dry. There will be problems of drinking water and irrigation. The fertility of our cultivable land will be decreased. Similarly, there will be effects in whole eco-system.

There are several negative effects of destroying the forest in our day to day life. So we all should get together to protect and preserve the natural heritages located nearby our house. At the same time we should preserve and protect the historical and archaeological things located around our neighbourhood because they reflect our glorious art, architecture and culture.
