Love your park. NPS turns 100 today!
The National Park Service has been celebrating its centennial all year - today is the day of the NPS founding, August 25, 1916. Thank you to the NPS founders: Theodore Roosevelt, Horace M. Albright, Stephen Mather, and Woodrow Wilson. NPS is offering free admission to any of its 412 parks this weekend - so get out there! The beginning of a new semester isn't the best timing for a park visit, of course. Enjoy them virtually with Ken Burns The National Parks : America's Best Idea (a Kanopy streaming video).
