Take in nature from home with National Park virtual tours and live animal cams

Going outside is encouraged as long as you keep a safe distance (at least 6 feet) away from anyone, but you can also take in the outdoors from your living room.  Google Earth is offering several National Park Virtual tours that will really get you feeling like you’re there.  You can take a hike through Yellowstone National ParkYosemite National Park and 29 others.  See a place you like, you can even plan a trip after things blow over.

For animal lovers, you may think you’re short on luck with zoos being closed.  You can actually check out several great animal cams at zoos around the world.  Curated by Dr. Margie Housley, who just wanted to give people stuck at home something to do to bring their spirits up, the collection includes cams for red pandas, baby raccoons, elephants and so many more!  My favorite is the sea otter cam!
