Find Your Park

Find your bees. 
Find your wildflowers. 
Find your fresh air. 
Find your wonder.

Find your park.


National Park Service is celebrating 100 years this year. August 25 marks the day the NPS was founded in 1916. Their mission is to:

…preserve unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. The Park Service cooperates with partners to extend the benefits of natural and cultural resource conservation and outdoor recreation throughout this country and the world.
