CELEBRATE JULY 4th
IN YOUR NATIONAL PARKS
As our nation celebrates another birthday, we can’t help but think about all that this country has given us, especially America’s more than 400 national parks. Offering special events for Americans of all ages, our national parks are the perfect place to celebrate the founding of our nation! Here is a list of national park events where everyone is invited to honor our great nation and its important history:
I am very excited to share that because of your support during our 45 Days of Giving campaign we reached our $450,000 year-end goal! You made the Foundation’s 45th Anniversary one to remember.
As we enter a new year, I am so grateful for generous friends like you who believe as I do — that our national parks are places that must be preserved and protected for every generation.
It is time to start planning your 2013 national park vacation. Today, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced dates in 2013 when more than 2,000 national parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges, and other federal lands will offer free admittance to everyone.
The 13 Fee Free Days in 2013 include Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January 21), National Park Week (April 22 – 26), Founders Day (August 25), National Public Lands Day (September 28), and Veterans Day Weekend (Nov. 9-11).
