Our National Parks: Little Known Benefits

Do you like visiting and camping in our beautiful National Parks? They provide many enjoyable attractions.

But, here are some benefits of our National Parks that you may not have thought about.

  1. They give us pride to know that we, the people of the United States, own them.
  2. Visiting them helps visitors be more conscious of preserving nature.
  3. Looking at the wonders of our parks, for instance, staring into the Grand Canyon, can make us feel humble.
  4. Such observation can also, paradoxically, make us feel bigger through a sense of connectedness with everything else.
  5. The parks help protect wildlife and preserve species, for example the bison and the wolves of Yellowstone.
  6. They inhibit unbridled development.
  7. They provide an encounter with nature that tends to  raise a healthy awareness of environmental issues.
  8. The national parks help preserve forests and meadows.

Next time you go camping in a National Park, remember some of these benefits.
