Is It Possible…for Parks to Get Bigger?

September 11, 2016

Yes! Yosemite National Park recently grew, 400-acres bigger actually — that’s the size of over 333 football fields! Earlier this year, an organization called The Trust for Public Land bought a 400-acre piece of land named Ackerson Meadow. In September, it donated that piece of land to Yosemite National Park. With this donation, Ackerson Meadow is now o cially a part of Yosemite National Park and a protected habitat for endangered wildlife species who call it home. We don’t know about you, but we think that’s pretty awesome and a great 100th birthday gift to the National Parks Service.
