We love our National Parks. Being in Nature not only raises our spirits but helps us to see the world from a different perspective.
The program is headed by first lady Michelle Obama and former first lady Laura Bush, and is intended to be an informational and educational campaign for park visitors to mark the coming 100th anniversary of the National Park Service in 2016.
In addition to open spaces, this campaign also features historical, urban, and cultural parks. The National Park Service not only protects, preserves and shares our nation’s wild natural resources, but they do the same for many of our cultural and historical treasures as well.
Check out this beautiful video to see just some of the many wonderful treasures in our National Parks (If you are reading this post through email, and cannot see the video, please click on the title of this post at the top of your email to go to my blog to see it, thanks!)
If you’ve never visited a National Park, I invite you to do it now. This is a great opportunity because this weekend, April 18 and 19th, 2015, admission is free!
Not sure about which National Parks are nearest you? No problem. Just visit the Find Your Park website (la página en español Encuentra Tu Parque) to locate the parks, you may be surprised to find some you never knew were nearby. If you do take the opportunity to go, share your stories, photos, and videos using the hashtag #EncuentraTuParque and join in the conversation!
