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:

We know that summer brings some dog days with it. Thankfully, the national parks are full of refreshing ways to beat the heat! Whether you want to take a dip, take a plunge, or take a stroll — the national parks have got you covered.
We also spoke to photographer Andy Porter about his passion for capturing national park moments and memories in his nature photography.
And don’t forget to find your park! NPF staffer Stefanie Mathew found her park in the Rockies by participating in the Student Conservation Association’s National Park Service Centennial Volunteer Ambassador orientation program.
