National Park Week 2015 Encourages Everyone To Find Your Park

Chillicothe – Hopewell Culture National Historical Park 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 FoundationFind 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.

You can "Find Your Park" by helping Hopewell Culture NHP with the Great American Clean-up on Saturday, April 4. Meander through mysterious Spruce Hill on a ranger guided hike Saturday, April 11. "Find Your Park" is also the theme for this year's National Park Week, April 18 –26. Hopewell Culture NHP will be kicking off National Park Week by participating in the Chillicothe Art League's Earth Gathering Festival on Saturday, April 18.These events and more can be found on our Events Calendar.

Visit National Park Week to learn more about how you can join parks, programs, and partners in celebrating National Park Week across the country.
