National Parks of the Southeast Utah Group (Arches and Canyonlands national parks and Hovenweep and Natural Bridges national monuments) are planning a number of special events in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service.
The public is invited to join park rangers for a variety of activities leading up to Thursday, August 25, 2016 —the actual day the National Park Service turns 100 years old.
A list of currently planned special events can be found at: go.nps.gov/SEUG100.

As new events are planned they will be added to the list—so check back for updates!
