1930 · Carlsbad Caverns Established

Age 6

Carlsbad Caverns in Carlsbad, New Mexico, became a National Park on May 14, 1930. Tourists can explore the caverns through guided and self-guided tours. In the 1960's, an amphitheater opened and started where tourists can sit and watch as the bats exit the cave for the night.

1934 · Alcatraz Island Becomes Federal Penitentiary

Age 10

Alcatraz Island officially became Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary on August 11, 1934. The island is situated in the middle of frigid water and strong currents of the San Francisco Bay, which deemed it virtually inescapable. Alcatraz became known as the toughest prison in America and was seen as a “last resort prison.” Therefore, Alcatraz housed some of America’s most notorious prisoners such as Al Capone and Robert Franklin Stroud. Due to the exorbitant cost of running the prison, and the deterioration of the buildings due to salt spray, Alcatraz Island closed as a penitentiary on March 21, 1963. 
1953 · Grizzly Bear Becomes State Animal

Age 29

The California grizzly bear became designated as the state animal in 1953.
