National parks in the state of California encompass a wide range of ecosystems, from the spectacular desert scenery and vegetation of Death Valley and Joshua Tree National Parks, and Lassen Volcanic National Park's active volcanic landscape, to the marine life and kelp forests of the island chain lying off the south coast that make up the Channel Islands National Park. Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks feature impressive deep canyons and geological formations, while the glacial valley at Yosemite contains mighty granite monoliths, cliffs and waterfalls.
