Getting Young People To Our Desert National Parks


Appreciate the beauty of nature! Get a day off and visit desert national parks. Introduce your family especially the young ones to these spectacular places because the younger they get to know the parks, the more they’ll recognize their value. Watch a variety of birds, go backpacking trip, and see beautiful paintings.

During the hundredth anniversary of the National Park Service, it’s good to reflect on those who had the foresight to preserve our air, land, water, wildlife, and historic and cultural sites for future generations.  And the first birthday of our newly created desert national monuments underscores the importance of protecting land for people and wildlife.

Which makes it especially important to get outside with those future generations and introduce them to these special places.
