FA16-Project13-week 2

Week Two I played Save The Parks. This game is about how volunteers go and clean up our national parks. What is interesting The game is part of a larger effort ($5 million in grants) by American Express to get 1 million people to volunteer in national parks by 2017.  The game has 4 different characters, some you have to unlock. In Save the Park your character is a park volunteer. You accomplish volunteer tasks and get to see the effects on park conservation. In this game your visit national parks and beaches and do things such as clean up, and plant. The game encourages you to take the game into the real world and volunteer in a national park.
