"Find Your Park" is the theme for this year's National park Week, April 18 - 26. Launched March 30 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 the 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.
