Camping is a hobby that is loved by so many people across the world, especially in the U.S. With so many beautiful places to camp across the United States, you can see why it is one of our favorite pastimes! With camping becoming increasingly popular in the U.S., it’s so important to support our national and state parks!
Many fellow campers are on a budget. They want to enjoy their favorite hobby without breaking the bank. Did you know that camping in National or State Parks can be a lot cheaper than camping in many other campgrounds? A lot of them even offer free camping areas. This is ideal for people who like to backpack.
The next reason is for the beauty of our national and state parks. One of the main reasons people go camping is to enjoy the nature and beauty of the outdoors. National and state parks are mostly protected lands and chalk full of natural beauty. They offer wonderful hiking trails and many other activities to enjoy the outdoors. Some of the nation’s top camping destinations are in national
and state parks!
Another reason to support our nation’s parks is for the wildlife. With many of our nation’s parks being protected lands, it helps protect the wildlife in those areas. It is vital to the ecosystem to protect our wildlife populations. What makes many of our parks so beautiful is the exquisite wildlife inhabited there.
There are economic benefits to supporting these parks as well. U.S. national and state parks help stimulate the economy through tourism and recreation. Our parks also help provide jobs for many people across the nation. Did you know that these parks even help the air quality in areas surrounding them and who doesn’t like clean air?
The thought of our nation’s parks being threatened by the recent changes to the protection of national lands by the government is scary. Our National and state parks are part of our American heritage. We need to help protect these lands so we can continue to enjoy them and so our future generations can enjoy them!
