When most people hear the term “National park”, they automatically think of names such as “Yellowstone,” or “Yosemite,” or “Grand Canyon”. The big parks’ names bring to mind vast stretches of undisturbed wilderness perfect for hiking, camping, and nature-watching. But while this vision of America’s National Parks is wholly accurate and sufficiently breathtaking, there’s more.
America’s National Park system has an incredible 388 places to visit. This number includes not only the big parks, but also monuments, historical sites, recreation areas, battlefields, as well as scenic lakeshores, seashores, and rivers. And the parks themselves don’t just stop at geyser-fields and mule-excursions. In America’s National Parks, you can climb an active volcano in Hawaii, “spelunk” the vast underground world of Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, dive the exotic coral reef of Biscayne Bay in Florida, or cast your fishing nets in the far reaches of the Pacific with the locals of American Samoa. Each of these 388 places has a unique appeal – from the natural to the manmade, from the ethereal in the factual, from the subtle to the overwhelming – with the whole collection offering vacationers a nearly endless range of interests and activities in which to explore and indulge.
SeeAmerica.org is a great place to begin planning your trip to one of, or several of, America’s National Parks. From the home page, you can search all of the Parks by name, region, activity, or even zip code. The site also serves as a portal to other important sites, like the National Park Service’s official website, www.nps.gov, and the National Park Foundation’s, www.nationalparks.org. From SeeAmerica.org you can get to all the information you ‘ll need to plan your trip from start to finish – from directions to the park, to park fees, to typical weather conditions.

Farmer Wang Zuolu grows oranges and peanuts on a hilltop overlooking China’s beautiful Yangtze River. His family has lived there for generations in a farmhouse of thick, mud-packed walls. But Wang, 70, and his wife Zhang Changying, 60, know that their family’s happy life on the hill is coming to an end. Soon their farm will be covered by water. They must start a new life in a new village. They will have to move their family cemetery and replant their orchards.
Wang and his wife are just two of the 1.2 million Chinese who are being forced from their homes by the construction of the Three Gorges Dam.
The Three Gorges Dam is named for three spectacular gorges, or canyons, in central China. When it is completed, the dam will use water power to create electricity. Its builders say it will help prevent flooding by the Yangtze. But it will also be very destructive, changing China’s natural scenery and the lives of many of its people forever.
For hundreds of years, poets and painters have been inspired by the Yangtze’s winding path and the steep cliffs and flat plains that lie on either side of its waters. But the Yangtze can rise over its banks, causing terrible floods.
Workers are building a 600-foot-high wall that will stretch across the Yangtze. Then they will install giant generators. These will provide as much energy for the area as 15 large coal-burning power stations. However, many scientists say the dam will be an ecological disaster. It will destroy the natural surroundings (including the stunning gorges) and threaten many fish and animals.
By blocking the flow of the Yangtze, the dam will create a 370-mile lake, or reservoir, west of the city of Yinchang. It will swallow hundreds of towns and villages.
The reservoir will also threaten the habitats of hundreds of fish, plants, and animal species. Among the creatures at risk: rare river dolphins, clouded leopards, and Siberian white cranes. The government promises to monitor the environment around the dam and has set aside money to create a protective area for the dolphins.
But scientists are doubtful about promises. They warn that blocking the river will create sewage backups and perhaps even cause more floods. Some fear that the dam may collapse. Many dams in China have collapsed in the past 20 years.
China’s culture and history are also endangered by the dam. Ancient pagodas (temples) and other important historic sites will be under water.
The Chinese who must leave their homes are already feeling the impact of the Three Gorges Dam. These resettlers, or yimin, have no choice but to find new homes and jobs.
Despite their worries, the Chinese are not permitted to speak out against the project, which is expected to cost more than $24 billion. Journalist Dai Qing landed in prison after she criticized the dam. “There is only one Yangtze River,” she wrote in protest. “And we have already subjected it to many stupid deeds.”
