Happy 100th Birthday National Parks
On Aug. 25, 2016 our National Park Service turns 100 years old and I think that’s a reason to celebrate.
We live among some of the most spectacular sights in the world and they’re spread throughout our great nation. From the Great Smoky Mountains and Acadia in the east to the Grand Canyon and Rocky Mountains in the west, we have a wide variety of parks to enjoy. Our parks range (pun intended) from huge, majestic sites like Bryce and Zion to small, historic sites like Thaddeus Kosciuszko (just fun to say).
Our National Parks are not only about fresh air and nature. They represent our history and people who have made our nation what it is. Our parks are outdoor classrooms where every visitor is a student. They are protectors of our beautiful, natural world.
No doubt, there’s a National Park near you. Plan a trip to visit and be part of a great celebration.
