- Head out to a centennial event. There are a variety of special celebrations happening at our more than 400 national parks across the country. You can check out what the parks nearest you are doing at FindYourPark.com / EncuentraTuParque.com.
- Give back to our national parks. From volunteering, to commemorative coins, to being part of the National Park Foundation’s efforts to raise $100,000 for the National Park Service by the 100th birthday, there are endless ways to show your love and support for national parks.
For those of you who may not know, the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation launched the Find Your Park/Encuentra Tu Parque movement in March 2015 to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the National Park Service. Inspiring people from all backgrounds to celebrate and support America’s national parks and community-based programs, #FindYourPark / #EncuentraTuParque invites people to discover and share their own unique connections to our nation's natural landscapes, vibrant culture, and rich history.
