National Park Week Begins April 21

by The Woodlands

Experience America’s national parks! Throughout the week of Saturday, April 21 through Sunday, April 29, all national park service sites that charge an entrance fee will offer free admission to everyone.

For one week each April, the National Park Service joins with the National Park Foundation – the official charity of America's national parks – to highlight the amazing natural and cultural resources of the national parks and invite everyone to celebrate America's treasured places.

According to the National Park Service, the theme for National Park Week in 2018 is "Park Stars, celebrating everything from star-bright skies to park features and resources. National Park Week is a time to explore amazing places, discover stories of history and culture.”
