National Park Week Free Entry: April 20-26
From April 20 through 28 the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation present National Park Week 2013.
This year’s theme, “Did you know…” is the perfect opportunity for Americans to learn amazing and unique things about their 401 national parks, according to a news release.
With free admission to all parks from April 22 through April 26, it is also a great time to explore parks in your own backyard or across the country.
“From bike tours and concerts to whale-watching and living history encampments, a full schedule of National Park Week events offers something for everyone,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “Whether you want to learn, relax, have fun, exercise, watch wildlife, or be inspired – there’s a park for you.”
“National Park Week is a great time to experience all that our national parks have to offer,” said Neil Mulholland, president and CEO of the National Park Foundation. “Did you know it is also the perfect time to become an active steward of these extraordinary places? Together, we can ensure that they remain vibrant and relevant for generations to come.”
