Something New for 102

Celebrate the National Park Service's 102nd birthday this year by discovering something new! Even at your favorite or most visited park, there are new experiences and discoveries waiting for you. From recreational opportunities, a new park to visit, NPS programs in your community, or a surprising fact about history or nature, find and share it! You can even use a special Facebook frame for the occasion!

The National Park Service was created on August 25, 1916, when President Woodrow Wilson signed the National Park Service Act. Each year, we work with partners to celebrate this anniversary. Find a park near you or special events happening at parks year round.
