National Park Week 2015 Encourages Everyone To Find Your Park
POINT REYES STATION, CA - Point Reyes National Seashore joins parks, programs and partners across the country to encourage everyone to find their park and share their stories online at FindYourPark.com. Launched this week 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. Come and watch the sunset from the only National Seashore on the west coast; enjoy over 150 miles of hiking trails, many open to equestrians; catch some of the migratory gray whales heading north to Alaska. Additionally, enjoy Congressionally-designated wilderness, including one of only two marine wilderness areas in the entire National Park system side by side with dairy and beef ranches celebrating a storied agricultural heritage. This is an extraordinary place.
"National parks like Point Reyes National Seashore are forever," said Superintendent Cicely Muldoon. "They are a gift from the past, and a promise to the future. We invite you to help us deliver on that promise for the next generation of park visitors, supporters, and advocates. Come see for yourself, it's worth it!"
