National Park Week & National Volunteer Week 2010
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 2010, National Park Week lasted from Saturday, April 17 through Sunday, April 25.
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.
