How To Make Your Resolutions Count

December is the time to think of others — you show your appreciation, love, and support through thoughtful gifts. But January is a month that’s all about you. The start of the new year is when you make resolutions to improve and challenge yourself. And what could be a better gift than a healthy and active lifestyle?

In honor of the centennial year of the National Park Service in 2016, make a New Year’s resolution to enjoy and exercise in America’s national parks.
