PAGO PAGO, American Samoa – The National Park of American Samoa joins parks, programs, and partners across the country to encourage everyone to find their park and share their stories online at FindYourPark.com. Launched today 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 Samoan pride. The campaign not only recognizes American Samoa’s tropical rainforests, coral reefs, fruit bats, and the Samoan culture, but all of the diverse 407 National Park Service sites. Just like the National Park of American Samoa, each national park unit is unique and includes for example, historic events such as battles, areas to recreate and relax, and even showcases the homes and birthplaces of U.S. presidents.
The National Park of American Samoa is planning a variety of events and activities that will occur in 2015 and 2016. The community will be invited to participate to help them to find their national park.
