National Park Week 2015 Encourages Everyone To Find Your Park
Paicines, CA - Pinnacles National Park joins parks, programs, and partners across the country to encourage everyone to find their park and share their stories online at FindYourPark.com. Launched yesterday by the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation, Find Your Park is a public awareness and education campaign celebrating the milestone centennial anniversary of the National Park Service in 2016 and setting the stage for its second century of service.
Find Your Park invites the public to see that a national park can be more than a place -- it can be a feeling, a state of mind, or a sense of American pride. Beyond vast landscapes, the campaign highlights historical, urban, and cultural parks, as well as the National Park Service programs that protect, preserve and share nature, culture, and history in communities nationwide.
"Find Your Park" is also the theme for this year's National Park Week, April 18-26. Pinnacles will be celebrating the National Park Service centennial during National Park Week 2015. There will be special programs throughout the week. The weekend will end with an Earth Day Habitat Restoration Service Event on Saturday April 25, 2015 from 9:30 am - 1 pm meeting on the Visitor Center on the eastside of the park. Find your park and take an active part in preserving it by lending a helpful hand. Event details can be found at the volunteer.gov website.
"National Park Week provides a great opportunity for visitors of all ages to come out and explore their National Parks," said Superintendent Karen Beppler-Dorn. "We invite you to celebrate National Park Week and find your park in Pinnacles National Park."
