As a huge nature buff, Earth Ranger Emma loves spending time in national parks. But there are so many amazing parks across North America that it’s impossible to see them all. Or is it? Emma turns an unwelcome order to “take things easy for a while” into an opportunity to fulfil one of her life-long dreams: To start an ultimate ranking guide to National Parks of North America.

Are you travelling to a National Park this year? Or are you planning a camping trip but haven’t decided on where to go? Check out the list below and listen in for some great reviews and insider tips!

Grounded ???

Number One has put Emma on a mandatory holiday to make sure she does not get overworked, but our intrepid reporter is not having it! Instead of taking a quiet holiday, Emma is going to check off an item on her bucket list: to explore national parks in Canada and the USA. She’ll see the sights, learn about the plants and animals in each place, and, maybe (just maybe) find a moment or two to relax.
