National Park Week 2015 Encourages Everyone To Find Your Park
BERLIN, MD – Assateague Island National Seashore joins parks, programs and partners across the country to encourage everyone to find their park and share their stories online at FindYourPark.com. Launched yesterday by the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation, Find Your Park is a public awareness and education campaign celebrating the milestone centennial anniversary of the National Park Service in 2016 and setting the stage for its second century of service.
Find Your Park invites the public to see that a national park can be more than a place -- it can be a feeling, a state of mind, or a sense of American pride. Beyond vast landscapes, the campaign highlights historical, urban, and cultural parks, as well as the National Park Service programs that protect, preserve and share nature, culture, and history in communities nationwide.
“Find Your Park” is also be the theme for this year’s National Park Week, April 18 – 26. Explore sandy beaches, salt marshes, maritime forests and coastal bays at Assateague Island. Rest, relax, recreate and “Find your Park” on the edge of the continent. Entrance fees will be waived on April 18 and 19. Celebrate Junior Ranger Day on April 18 in the Maryland District and April 25 in the Virginia district. Check our schedule for special programs throughout the week.
“A park can be many different things to many different people” says Superintendent Debbie Darden. “We invite everyone to celebrate National Park Week at Assateague Island National Seashore or a National Park near you.”
