America's largest celebration of national heritage is about making great connections, exploring amazing paces, discovering open spaces, and enhancing America's best idea- the national parks!

Each April, during the presidentially-proclaimed National Park Week, we join with the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America's national parks, to celebrate America's treasures. National Park Week is a time to explore amazing places, discover stories of history and culture, help out, and find your park!

Get ready to celebrate National Park Week 2019 from April 20 to 28! Parks across the country will host a variety of special programs and events.
