Devils Tower, WY –Devils Tower National Monument joins over 400 hundred other National Park Service sites in celebration of the 99th birthday of the National Park Service. In recognition of this special day, Devils Tower will waive entrance fees into the Monument on Tuesday, August 25.

The National Park Service was established on August 25, 1916. The United States was the first country in the world to set aside its most significant places as national park units so that they could be enjoyed by all. Today, there are over 400 national parks throughout the country –each one an important part of our collective identity. Some park units commemorate notable people and achievements, others conserve magnificent landscapes and natural wonders, and all provide a place to have fun and learn something.

The mission of the National Park Service extends beyond parks into communities across the country where we work with partners to help preserve local history and create close-to-home recreational opportunities that revitalize neighborhoods and enhance the quality of life. To see what we do here in Wyoming, go to www.nps.gov/wy.
