There are many, many climate change impacts on our national parks:
* Grand Canyon National Park has already endured 13 years of drought, and rising temperatures make water sources even scarcer, threatening the survival of area wildlife.
* Many important archaeological sites at historic Jamestown are being lost to coastal erosion and rising sea levels in this park established to protect some of our earliest American colonial history.
* Giant sequoias, an icon in Yosemite and Sequoia Kings Canyon National Parks may not survive the drought stress and increased wildfire expected with climate change.
* Glacier National Park contained more than 150 glaciers in 1910. Now, it holds only 26 glaciers -a reduction of about 67 percent. Experts predict that all of the glaciers in the park could be lost by as early as 2020.

What can I do?
* Get involved with your local national park to improve wildlife habitat, restore wetlands, and other adaptation measures.
* Help your national parks and communities by conserving energy, using public transportation, supporting renewable energy and spreading the word.
* Attend events like the People's Climate March | 09.21.14 | NYC (info below)


Come with me to the biggest climate change march ever?
peoplesclimate.org
On September 21st the People's Climate March is going to be the largest demonstration ever demanding action on climate change - and it's happening right outside a UN summit of world leaders discussing the climate crisis.

This lesser-known national park, located in Northern California, is a great place to let your inner Bill Nye out and explore each type of volcano for yourself!
