The National Parks of America
In 1872, Yellowstone became the first National Park in the world. Soon, this idea of preservation and admiration of the land spread across America, and to countries beyond. This is how the system of national parks came into existence. As we celebrate the National Park week, I present to you this write up about my experience with National Parks.
I am an active member of National park Junior Ranger program. Anyone can become a member of this program by visiting the park physically or virtually through nps.gov.
In the 19th century, political figures called for a system of preservation of these landmarks. About 40 years after Yellowstone National Park was found, President Woodrow Wilson signed the National Park Service Organic Act in 1916.
