Go Green in Germany's National Park

These two postcards are from a part of Germany I have never even heard of but we are so glad our friend Carmen S sent them to us. The postcards show a National Park in Germany by the name of Bayerischer Wald. So my daughter and I took to the computer to find out some more about this fantastic looking park. Many people travel to this park yearly just as people do here in the United States of America traveling to Yellowstone National Park. Its a great vacation for people of all ages. We love the wilderness and that looks like a place we would visit if ever our travels take us to Germany. Many thanks Carmen S. for these teachable moments.

Other Facts: The Bavarian Forest National Park was the 1st National Park in Germany, founded in 1970,  and covers a large area from Bayerisch Eisenstein along the Czech border to the South.
The Park contains the largest area between the Atlantic and the Urals where nature is left to its own devices, allowing it to return over time to its natural ‘wilderness’ state.
The Park is 1 of only 3 in Germany which are internationally recognized according to the criterion that at least 75% of the Park area must be untouched by any human activity such as hunting or forestry.

There are many threatened species which have found refuge in the National Park: otters, grouse, small owls and many woodpecker varieties. Lynx have returned to the Forest, from the neighboring Bohemian Forest. Black storks and peregrine falcons have returned. Red deer, roe deer and wild boar are at home here.
