99 Ways To #FindYourPark
On August 25, the National Park Service turns 99 years old. And everyone is getting a present: free admission!
But the excitement doesn’t stop there.
In celebration of being one year away from the big 100, the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation created a fun list of 99 Ways to Find Your Park.
This list helps people everywhere discover all that a park can be and the variety of experiences that can be had in a park, highlighting the essence of the Find Your Park/Encuentra Tu Parque movement launched earlier this year.
Showing off the breadth and depth of the National Park System, the list of 99 ideas for enjoying your national parks includes a wide range of activities, including:
Take a look at the entire list of 99 ideas and be a part of the birthday fun! Check off what you’ve already done, share your experiences with friends and family using #FindYourPark and #EncuentraTuParque on social media, and try something new!
And, for some fun inspiration on how you can mark a few of the items off the list, take a look at this fun video from our friends at Cape Krusenstern National Monument in Alaska. You’ll love it.
