Today's topic was requested by Peter Hitt from Oak Grove, Kentucky, @pahitt on Twitter: vegetation. Since tomorrow is the Fourth of July or Independence Day celebrations here in the U.S., we'll consider the vegetation in America's National Parks.
To find out about ANP's vegetation, many people go to one of the Frommer's Guides, which are some of the most popular guides in the U.S. Started by Arthur Frommer in 1957, who, as a corporal serving in the U.S. Army in Germany, wrote a travel guide to Europe for G.I.s. Click here for Frommer's information about the vegetation in Yellowstone National Park.
The National Park Service is involved in taking inventories of the vegetation in all the national parks. For more information about the Vegetation Inventory Program click here.
