Celebrate the National Park Service on its Birthday

August 25, 2010Trevor MartinNPF Blog

Turning 94 is a cause for celebration! Today, Wednesday, August 25, you can celebrate your parks and wish a happy birthday to the National Park Service! Known to park rangers as Founders Day, this anniversary reminds us that America did something unprecedented when, at the urging of its citizens, it preserved millions of acres of pristine wilderness for the enjoyment of all people in perpetuity. Today that wilderness is called Yellowstone National Park. It was the world’s first national park and remains an inspiration to our nation and the world.

Take a moment to celebrate a legacy we all have inherited as Americans, and join us in making sure our national parks are protected and preserved for generations to come. Make a birthday gift!
