The National Park System holds 417 national park sites, covering about 84 million acres. Parks Abstracted is my way to share with others the importance of protecting our national parks. National parks represent not only the vastness of our nation’s resources and wildlife but also the beauty of America’s history, culture, and environment. Our parks need us more now than ever. These precious lands are being taken away from us and it needs to come to a stop. Putting a twist on the iconic landscapes is an effort to inspire everyone to look at our parks in a different way and identify their beauty as well as their importance.
