Devils Tower National Monument 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 the theme for this year’s National Park Week, April 18 – 26. Entrance fees will be waived on
Saturday, April 18 and Sunday, April 19, a special ranger guided walk on the Tower Trail on Saturday, April 18 at 10am
and Sunday, April 19. Saturday April 18 – National Junior Ranger Day, join a special Junior Ranger program at the new
information kiosk at 10 am. Wednesday April 22, 10 am – 12 noon Wildlife Wednesday, join a ranger at Prairie Dog town
for an in depth look at prairie dogs. Thursday April 23, 10 am – 12 noon Raptor Watch join a ranger near the visitor
