The United States National Park is marking its 100th year anniversary this year, 2016, and the celebration, thus, rekindles people's love for nature and outdoors. Parks are important to people for a variety of reasons.

One of the reasons why parks are very important was shared by a retired park superintendent, Gerald Baker via the Ken Burns' documentary, "The National Parks: America's Best Idea" , as reported by Pjstar.com.

Baker said:

"We need national parks to have people - especially our kids - understand what America is."

Baker continued to narrate that:

"America is not sidewalks. America's not stores. America's not video games. America's not restaurants. We need national parks so people can go there and say, 'Ahhhh! This is America.'"

Wonderful events that are close to the hearts of many are going to take place in celebration of the U.S. National Park's 100th birthday. These events are going to take place in multiple locations in the United States and in countries outside the United States, as reported by Tyler Paper.

The celebration of the U.S. National Park's 100th birthday encompasses 400 locations. These locations cover battlefields, monuments, parks significant in history, water shores, picturesque rivers, and also the White House, as reported also by the same publication.

Fifty nine of the locations covered in celebration of the U.S. National Park's 100th birthday are real national parks that mark a legend in history. Yellowstone National Park is one of these locations that mark a legend in the history of the celebration of the U.S. National Park's 100th birthday celebration.

Yellowstone Park is located in Wyoming. Yellowstone is the first national park to ever exist in the United States. Yosemite Park in California was also included in the places covered in celebration of the U.S. National Park's 100th birthday.
