In terms of how well they’re protected, Arlington Gardens in Arlington, Virginia is ranked as the best park in the country according to the American National Parks Conservation Association (ANPCA).
Arlington Gardens was founded in 1882 by the United States’ first prime minister, Benjamin Harrison.
Since its founding, it has been a refuge for hundreds of thousands of birds, reptiles and amphibians.
This includes the endangered red-legged frog, which is at risk of extinction due to climate change and habitat loss.
In fact, in 2016, the US Fish and Wildlife Service listed the Arlington Gardens area as the most threatened species in the world.
The park’s wildlife habitat has been targeted in recent years with more than 1,300 bird species and over 400 amphibians listed as endangered, according to ANPCA.
The US Department of the Interior also recently announced it was rescinding a conservation easement allowing developers to build a new golf course in the park, as the government was “considering options to remove the endangered species.”
In 2018, the park announced a $2.8 million gift from a donor that will provide funds to develop the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. While the park is well known for its natural attractions, there are a few more reasons to love Arlington Gardens.
For one, the land is so beautiful it can be the backdrop for a short film.
Another reason is that it’s home to the world’s only permanent collection of butterflies.
There are about 2,500 species of butterflies living in the United State and Canada.
The species includes the monarch butterfly, the North American brown-footed butterfly, and the northern pond butterfly, which lives in the Ohio River in the Cincinnati area.
The most famous of these is the golden-winged swallowtail, which has a wingspan of up to 4 feet and weighs about 3 pounds.
It lives in southeastern North Carolina and Ohio.
Another favorite of Arlington Gardens’ residents is the Virginia-grown wild turkey.
These magnificent birds are native to the region, but were introduced to the area during the American Revolution, when soldiers from Fort McHenry brought back war bonnets, which were used as hats.
The military also used wild turkeys in hats.
Although they are now considered pests in many parts of the world, they still live in the heart of Arlington.
Another natural wonder in Arlington Gardens is the Arlington National Cemetery.
There, over 1,000 burials are taking place every year.
This year, about 2 million burials were completed in the cemetery.
These are the largest burials in the entire country.
It is also the largest cemetery in the U.S., according to CNN.
And in 2018, Arlington National Park also announced that the Arlington Cemetery and Memorial will be named after the late US president Abraham Lincoln.
In his final years, Lincoln often visited Arlington, especially in the summer months, according the Arlington Public Library.
