      A national park is a park in use for conservation purposes and it is protected. Often it is a reserve of natural, semi-natural, or developed land that a sovereign state declares or owns. Although individual nations designate their own national parks differently, there is a common idea: the conservation of 'wild nature' for posterity and as a symbol of national pride. Today Muir is referred to as the "Father of the National Parks." A series of sketches first published in the Atlantic Monthly, Muir's Our National Parks includes Muir's reminiscences of Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park, and General Grant National Park.
