June: In Case You Missed It

June is one of the most exciting months of the year. The weather warms up, the kids get out of school, and, of course, summer starts! With all the excitement, it can be hard to keep up with everything that happens at the National Park Foundation.

But don’t worry! We’ve got your recap for June, just in case you missed it:

Celebrating Father’s Day In Your National Parks

For many of us, our fathers are responsible for first introducing us to the wonders of the National Park System. They led us on hikes through jaw-dropping natural landscapes. They walked with us through the hallowed grounds of our nation’s battlefields. They taught us about the diversity of cultures that together create our national identity.  

They instilled in us a lifelong adoration and passion for all these special places have to offer.

My Trio Of Mother Figures

I have a mother, grandmother, and aunt of uncommon strength and kindness, and all together they make up my family. Growing up, I spent nights with my mother chatting about our days and falling asleep in the nook of her back while watching 1950s syndicated comedies, doing homework and riding to school every day with my grandmother, and spending weeknight dinners and summer vacations with my aunt. These are my childhood memories and I will always cherish them.
