There are many natural disasters that affect the world, for example, volcanoes. Mount St. Helens is known to be the most active volcano in the Cascade Range in Washington; effecting the people and the state. It was first recognized as a volcano in 1835! Before the eruption on May 18,1980, Mount St. Helens was a beautiful symmetrical cone, 3,000 meters above sea level. For most of the 20th century, many people viewed this mountain and recreation area as a beautiful and peaceful place, but after the volcano erupted in 1980 that view point was shattered. The eruption removed 1,300 feet of the summit leaving a horseshoe-shaped crater and a barren wasteland. This famous mountain got it 's name from Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest, they
These climates cause all plants and animals residing in the park to adapt to their differing conditions. The park is home to grasses, ferns, trees, wildflowers, lichens, mushrooms, and mosses.

From around 1811 to 1840, a 2,200-mile trail was made, going from Missouri to Oregon. This trail was made by fur trappers and traders, and would soon be called The Oregon Trail.
I choose the Crystal River State Archaeological State Park in Crystal River , Florida. It is more commonly know as the Indian Burial Mounds. The park itself is in a beautiful location , overlooking the Crystal River on one side and grassy plains on the other side. There is recreational activities in the park as well as the museum. Some of the activities are salt and freshwater fishing , picnicking , bird watching and nature walks. The museum itself features a video about the ancient tribe that once lived there and a collection of artifacts. A few of the artifacts are arrowheads , pottery , jewelry , stone and bone tools. The main attraction of the interior museum is a diorama of a scale model of the site when the Indians lived there .
This park is considered one of Georgia's Seven Wonders of Georgia. This park is a part of Georgia's history. Years ago this park was once covered by an ocean. There are also many different types of animals. There are deer, squirrels, raccoons, woodpeckers, and many other animals. Park rangers will take you on a guided tour all over the canyon. The canyon is a big place with over 1,108 acres. This is a place that the government needs to make a national park, because it can bring tourist in from all over the country. There are old cars that have been there since the olden days when the farm was there. The leaves are green and beautiful. Before this land became a canyon, it was once a forest. People stay over night just to see the amazing view that the canyon has to show. There are places you can pull in your camper and have the time of your life that night. The roads are neatly paved and not bumpy with holes all in them. The park rangers keep the park nice and clean, which is why it needs to become a national park. The government will make a lot of money off this park if people just come to visit or even stay a few nights. This park is just amazing and people will love the view during the day or even at night. This is a beautiful park and people need to visit

Many species of mammals reside in Alaska. One is of the bear species, the black bear. Black bears have a medium to heavy frame with large ears and powerful limbs.

First off they both loved and cared for the outdoors, and forests. This was influenced in the story, “Bully for Yosemite” By John Muir, when he said, “Ignoring the chaos around them, the two men rode on horseback twenty miles, to Yosemite Valley and pitched camp in Mariposa.” (Paragraph 10) Also when Theodore Roosevelt Said, “The second night we camped in a snow-storm, on the edge of the canyon walls, under the spreading limbs of a grove of might sliver fry; and the next day we went down into the wonderful land of the valley itself.” (Paragraph 22) That was in the, “In Yosemite with John Muir” By Theodore Roosevelt, these quotes show that they are determined to save Yosemite no matter what it took.
Would you like to donate materials to help us build a garden for Stone Canyon? Stone Canyon is a outdoor learning center and a summer camp. They have schools that come to Stone Canyon. They teach you about all sorts of things like nature,indians, pioneers and who used to live in Larkspur back in the old days. They would like to have a garden because a lot of people do not come there a lot so they would like to have a garden so people can buy some of the flowers and veggies, so more people come to Stone Canyon. Another reason why is because they have a lot of ecners so they need to use some of those encers but there is a problem we do not have tools for the garden. So here is a few evidence I have for you.
“His glacial studies were the principal contributions Muir made as an original scientist, most of his life being devoted to travel, writing, and conservation activism (John).” Even though his glacial studies put in him conflict with the scientific ideas of the California state geologist, he was not afraid to document his experience and share his adventures with others. He also became familiar with the destruction of the Yosemite area. “Muir’s intimate acquaintance with the Yosemite area and the Sierra Nevada exposed him not only to the depredations of sheep but also to the rapid felling of giant old Sequoias, cut up for shingles and grape stakes (John).” This led him to publish articles to alert the public. As a result, Congress was pressured to establish Yosemite as a national park in 1890. Muir was known as a preservationist, who was trying to protect nature from human use. Even though Gifford Pinchot was Muir’s ally when Yellowstone was created in 1872, they disagreed when building a dam in the valley of Yosemite National Park. “Although originally allies in creating Yellowstone, the first national park, in 1872, Pinchot and Muir took opposed positions in the debate which lasted from 1909 to 1913, over building a dam in the Hetch Hetchy valley of Yosemite National park in order to supply water to growing San Francisco (Durbin).” Muir was afraid
Chaco canyon is an urban center because of its architecture and its high mountain deserts. Chaco canyon built enormous landscape and many storied buildings, they also made road with stairways. Cahokia is a Neolithic village and it was named after its tribe. Many settlers did not grow many mounds which are squares of platforms which they used for homes. These Cahokia’s grew lots of crops and they lived in round villages and
Yosemite and the Golbi Desert, two very iconic and historical landscapes, both verbally illustrated by different authors in their own articles. The two authors, John Muir and Timothy Severin, have their own style of writing, which do have differences from each other. It's almost as if you were to compare the imaginative mind of a five-year old to a more grown teenager. Both authors have very effective forms of description, but they wouldn’t be able to serve the same purpose. For example, if they were to have to write a script for a commercial, John Muir, author of the Yosemite author, would be more affective and attention grabbing. Timothy, on the other hand, would be a better candidate for writing something such as an informative article
On page x of John Muir’s non-fiction book, My First Summer in the Sierra, Galen Rowell states that “Muir’s amazing destiny can be directly traced to right intentions practiced during his lifetime.” There intentions play an enormous role in the shaping of Muir life: his ideals, morals, and values. Ultimately it is the intentions he grew up with that defined who he was as a naturalist, author and early advocate for the preservation of wilderness in the United States. Furthermore, his “right” choices in life influenced every one of his actions following. Eventually aiding in the protection of the beautiful land now known as Yosemite National Park. I believe “right intentions” means consciously choosing to act in the nature of others, to be selfless.
