Petrified Forest National Park Featured as 2006 National Passport Stamp
Petrified Forest, AZ – Petrified Forest National Park is being featured as the 2006 National Stamp on the collector’s series Passport to your National Parks, stated Lee Baiza, Superintendent.
The Passport program was started by Eastern National Parks Association and was established to help visitors discover the beauty and history found in America’s national parks. Each year a series of collectible Passport stamps is issued. The set of 10 stamps includes one national and 9 regional stamps. These stamps may be placed in the specially made Passport book which is perfect for planning a trip to your national parks and for saving memories after you’ve left. Cancellation stamps, which complement the collectible stamp sheets, can be found at national parks and monuments. These rubber-stamp ink markings record the name of the park and the date of your visit. The Passport book and the sheet of 10 stamps are available at Petrified Forest National Park in the visitor centers.
