Yellowstone National Park by Margaret J Hendry( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documentary about Yellowstone National Park, today and in the past. In 1872, Yellowstone became the first area set aside "for the preservation of' its wonders" and "for the enjoyment of the people." Since then, the Park Service has seen its holdings grow exponentially, but Yellowstone--with attractions such as El Capitan and Old Faithful--remains the crown jewel of the system.

Ecologists, environmentalists and scientists for the Park Service lead a tour of Yellowstone's most famous, fragile and threatened landmarks, detailing the damage that has occurred and explaining what must be done to keep Yellowstone safe for future generations

California Forever is a two-part series that tells the history and legacy of California's magnificent state parks, from Yosemite in 1864 to the present day. It is also the story of how the 'park idea' first started in California and led to the creation of the national park system. Together, the two one-hour episodes illustrate the importance of California's state parks for preserving the state's history, culture, and environment, as well as for public enjoyment. Many of the state's parks, now national icons, are facing a variety of challenges today. Episode One - California Forever: The History of California State Parks highlights the discovery and creation of California's state parks system and profiles the individuals and groups whose passion helped preserve and protect them for future generations, including John Muir. The episode takes viewers on a scenic, cultural and historical tour of California's state parks, highlighting key events and historic places that are crucial chapters of the California story, including Spanish colonists at Old Monterey, fortune seekers in Gold Country, the ill-fated Donner Party, and native tribes on the North Coast
