Free National Parks Day

To make it easier to experience America’s Great Outdoors, the National Park Service is waiving entrance fees, National Park Week – April 21-29, 2012.

National Park Week is a presidentially proclaimed celebration in recognition of America’s National Parks, celebrating what we all have inherited as Americans – 84 million acres of the world’s most spectacular scenery, historic landmarks and cultural treasures. Activities highlight youth programs and initiatives offered by the National Park Service to encourage the future protection and preservation of our American legacy and promote good stewardship of the land. In addition, the Junior Ranger program encourages America’s youth to explore, protect, and learn about our National Parks.
