Scotts Bluff 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 on Monday 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. Start the ball rolling for the week by joining staff and volunteers on Friday, April 17 at 9:00 am to "Clean the Park". With the monument beautified, we will host the "Spring Up the Bluff" relay race on Saturday, April 18 at 8:00 am. View the new park introduction video in the visitor center that will premiere on the same day. Sunday, April 19 marks the opening of the annual "An Artist's Perception" Art Show with an artist's reception from 2:00-4:00 pm.
