National Parks In USA
Even one hundred and fifty years ago, there were no national parks in the United States of America. There was not even any clear convention for designating a wilderness a national forest, actually. The first ever declared national forest in the world was the Yellowstone National Park.
The national parks are the breathing zone of the country. They are the playing ground and the free-roaming territory for the wildlife. Usually, the national forests preserve the flora and fauna of a vast region in its pristine form. Although there is no work-for-all formula for designating a national park, it usually involves the preservation and protection of an endangered or nearly extinct species of an animal or a plant.
The grey wolves were preserved in the Yellowstone National Park when they went extinct from the area due to unplanned hunting. The Redwood National and State Parks is another example of the reservation of the dear nature where the gigantic Redwood plants were reserved when the majority of the coastal redwoods were cut down randomly during and after the Gold Rush.
More than 50 national parks have been declared till now across the United States of America. Each of them offers the visitors a different aspect of the mother nature. Many of the parks provide leisure activities like backcountry camping, hiking, guided and unguided tours, trekking and climbing, rafting, skiing and snowshoeing and many others. Here are the popular national parks in the United States of America.
