National Park Week 2016 is Coming Up

FreeParks

Each spring the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation declare one week National Park Week to celebrate our national heritage. As part of the celebration, Entrance fees will be waived at all 410 sites under NPS management from April 16-24, 2016. This includes all National Parks, Monuments, Memorials, Historic Sites, Battlefields, etc. It’s also extra special this year because all of 2016 is a continuing celebration of the centennial of the National Park Service.

This year we’ll be on our spring break trip during this very week. Our America The Beautiful pass from last year is still valid, so we won’t be benefitting extra from the free entrance, but hopefully there will be some special events going on in the NPS sites we plan to visit: Big Bend, Guadalupe Mountains, Carlsbad CavernsWhite Sands and Bandelier. If this is also your spring break or if you’re just looking for a weekend getaway, be sure to check out NPS sites near you to Find Your Park and see what’s happening in your area.
