Podcast Episode #37: Amazing National Park Plants, ft. Saguaro and Sequoia
The National Park Service is in the business of a lot more than just beautiful mountain views.
Since the existence of national parks, the mission has always been about preserving entire ecosystems, and not just the “end result” beauties like gushing waterfalls or thriving wildlife. Protecting supporting areas — including their trees and plants — has always been an intention.
All national parks have plant life at the forefront of their preservation, but the two national parks we’ll be talking about today have been established, and well visited, due to their amazing plants.
