The National Park Service has launched a new Spanish language Web site.

The site contains suggested activities, maps, information, videos and interviews. It was developed in partnership with the Arthur Carhart National Wilderness Training Center and the University of Montana’s Wilderness Institute.

The site provides details about the country’s 702 designated wilderness areas and their significance. Part of the "Views of National Parks" program, it allows visitors to take virtual tours of magnificent public lands including rain forests, swamps, glaciers, caves, deserts and tundra.

The website was commissioned by the Interagency Wilderness Policy Council, consisting of representatives from the National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and U.S. Geological Survey.

You can find the site at: http://www.nature.nps.gov/views/index_wilderness_sp.htm#
