Yosemite National Park, CA — Four rangers from Jiuzhaigo National Park in China are participating in and observing various programs in Yosemite National park as part of a seven-week long exchange program between the two parks.
The purpose of the park exchange is to promote international cooperation that benefits both parks. The relationship will allow the parks to share approaches to collaboration including efforts to work with gateway communities, regional and local economies, friends groups and partner organizations.
In the future, Yosemite representatives will be visiting Jiuzhaigo National Park which is located on the western Sichuan Plateau. It is known for its waterfalls, spectacular lakes, pristine forests and diverse animal and plant life not unlike Yosemite.
