National Park Week

“Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach of us more than we can ever learn from books.”

Every April, during the presidentially proclaimed National Park Week, we join with the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, to celebrate America’s treasures. National Park Week is a time to explore amazing places, discover stories of history and culture, help out, and find your park.

Celebrate National Park Week 2022 with us April 16 to 24! Parks across the country will host a variety of special programs, events, and digital experiences. Entrance fees are waived on April 16 to kick off National Park Week and encourage everyone to enjoy their national parks.

Did you know there are more than 400 national parks? They come in different shapes, sizes, and naming designations (not all are named “National Park!”) and may be a lot closer to home than you think. Entrance fees are waived the first day of National Park Week (April 16) to encourage people to come out to enjoy their national parks.

Be sure to check the park’s website for the latest safety information and guidance, including social distancing and wearing masks.
