This article is trying to help state parks and national parks for better wildlife viewing experience. By doing research on wildlife viewing, landscape ecology edges and National Park focal animals, to develop design guidelines for wildlife viewing in their natural habitat. Taking a piece of land in Cades Cove as the site example to develop a new method for wildlife viewing for the whole Cades Cove, Great Smoky Mountain National Parks and all the national parks or state parks.
