Science and Art in the National Parks
Clary, Renee
Science Teacher, v83 n7 p33-38 Oct 2016
This year marks the U.S. National Park Service's 100th anniversary. Although the nation's first national park--Yellowstone--dates to 1872, the government organization protecting and administering the national parks was founded just a hundred years ago, in 1916. Many U.S. national parks were established to preserve their unique geology or biology. Over the years, their often stunning flora, fauna, and topography have been celebrated in many forms of artistic expression. This article describes ways to honor the centennial by integrating scientific concepts with the artistic endeavors that national parks inspire.
