National Park Week & National Volunteer Week
National Volunteer Week honors the individuals who dedicate themselves to taking action and solving problems in their communities. For 2013, National Volunteer Week was observed from Sunday, April 21 through Saturday, April 27.
National Park Week is an annual Presidentially proclaimed week for celebration and recognition of your National Parks. National Park Week usually coincides with Earth Day (April 22). For 2013, National Park Week will be observed from Saturday, April 20 through Sunday, April 28.
Your National Parks are living examples of the best this Nation has to offer-our magnificent natural landscapes and our varied yet interrelated heritage. Parks can provide recreational experiences, opportunities to learn and grow, and places of quiet refuge.
This year, take a moment, an hour, a day to visit the national parks near you.
Check out our National Park Week & National Volunteer Week 2013 page for a listing of events that will be held at Point Reyes National Seashore during or in conjunction with National Volunteer Week, Earth Day, and National Park Week.
