It’s almost here…
Did you know that National Park Week is April 20-28, 2013?
Did you know that there are 401 national parks? That they include seashores, battlefields, historic homes, archaeological sites, and spectacular natural areas?
Did you know there is at least one national park in every state?
Did you know that 99 percent of counties in America have recreational facilities such as playgrounds and trails funded by the National Park Service’s Land & Water Conservation Fund?
So, if you are looking for something fun and fantastic to do with family and friends, head out to America’s national parks where millions of stars light up the dark night sky, deer and antelope (and a few other critters!) play on the wide open range, and history is an unbelievable experience, not an exam.
The National Park Service is proud to once again join with the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, to present National Park Week, a presidential-proclaimed celebration of our national heritage.
