Each April, during the presidentially proclaimed National Park Week, we join with the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America's national parks, to celebrate America's treasures. National Park Week is a time to explore amazing places, discover stories of history and culture, help out, and find your park.

Thanks for celebrating National Park Week 2020 from April 18 to 26. Parks across the country hosted a variety of special programs and events with a focus on digital experiences in 2020. There were also special days during the week to highlight the different ways everyone can enjoy national parks.

It's not too late to join us on social media, find graphics to use, or stay caught up on news. Try to check off as many experiences on a list of 20 in '20 virtual ideas inspired by National Park Week.
