Game Reserve

The Game Reserve I have Chosen is Yosemite, It’s located in California in Yosemite Village. It was protected in 1864, Yosemite National Park is best known for its waterfalls. This park is nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more interesting creatures. The national park has mild climate and a mixture of plant species that provide a lush habitat for animals to live and feel at home in each location. This National Park supports more than 400 species of vertebrates including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. There you might catch the eyes of an acorn woodpecker, a California ground squirrel, a bobcat, or a Western fence lizard. The high diversity of species is the result of diverse habitats in Yosemite that are largely intact.

Adventure Recreation

Canada, Calgary
The park I have selected is the Canada Olympic Park in Alberta, the track that is used for sledding was also once used by athletes in 1988 during the winter games. The term sledding refers to traveling down a snowy hill using a sled that has a flexible flyer with wooden slats and metals runners. It’s usually done during the winter. The activity has been known to exist as fringe recreational activity.
