Beginning this Saturday, people everywhere are invited to experience America’s nearly 400 national parks which will be fee FREE all week. Celebrating the theme “Healthy Parks, Healthy People,” national parks across the country are encouraging people to come visit, get outdoors, and embrace a healthy lifestyle, while also embracing the importance of keeping our parks protected and preserved. 

For more information on National Park Week, and a full listing of events, including details on park-specific Earth Day events (April 22), Junior Ranger Day activities (April 23), and ways to lend a hand in local parks on Volunteer Day (April 16), visit www.nationalparkweek.org

On top of that, now is the time to get the app you've been eyeing. All national park apps will be free during National Park Week—April 16-24.

We are lucky to live in a country with such great natural resources. National park week is a great time to get out and explore the abundance of parks we have. My family and I love to visit all the parks in the Southwest US. But there is a park within a days drive of all US citizens. We need to get out more as a society and enjoy what we have.
