America’s national parks are full of timeless marvels that still rejuvenate the soul: the world’s largest trees in Sequoia; its most spectacular geothermal site in Yellowstone; the grandest canyon. Perhaps the movement’s most eloquent description that is still resonates came from national parks advocate John Muir: ‘Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity…’ Fortunately for the nerve-shaken, over-civilized people of then and now, President Woodrow Wilson created the National Parks Service (NPS) on August 25, 1916, though the drive to protect some of America’s most remarkable wild spaces, to be ‘used and preserved for the benefit of mankind’, began in the 1860s.
