Featured Maps! National Parks Worldwide

Theme for the week: National Parks Worldwide

December 6-8, 2017

National Parks provide protection for both land and ingenious animals, in hopes to preserve its natural habitat, as well as creating a space for people to explore, learn, and admire the allure that National Parks have to offer.

Come visit the library’s Map Collection room and appreciate the biodiversity of species, from elephants and hippos in the Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda, to the hyenas and Rhinos in the Nairobi Royal National Park in Kenya. Explore the earth’s magnitude of vegetation and life, such as the layout of tussock-land and grassland in New Zealand’s Tongariro National Park, or the exotic trees in Tarangire National Park in Africa, like the 32ft long Sausage Tree and the unique 49ft Umbrella Thorn Tree.
