Happy Earth Day
! Get ready to celebrate the day by diving into nature all week long.
This week, the National Park Service is celebrating National Park Week
from April 20-28. To commemorate the week, the service is offering free admission to all national parks, starting today and ending Friday, April 26. Many parks are planning special programs, such as day-long National Junior Ranger
activities for children.
There are over 400 national park units around the country. And now, thanks to the addition of First State National Monument
in Delaware, there is officially a park service unit in every state. So everybody can get out and enjoy the nation's parks. And this week, you can do it for free.
Hit one close to home or make a plan to visit one far away that you've always wanted to see.
