National parks can be a controversial topic, so make sure that you keep your post and your replies respectful!
National Parks can be defined as an entity that: “preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. The Park Service cooperates with partners to extend the benefits of natural and cultural resource conservation and outdoor recreation throughout this country and the world” (NPS, 2018).
We all have probably enjoyed a National Park, and if you would like more information, take time to look around: https://www.nationalparks.org/
To understand our impact in National Parks, and what we should be doing to preserve them.
