“It’s a great time to experience and celebrate our parks and historic places, and discover and share with each other how these treasured places are vital and relevant to people from all backgrounds from all over the country,” said Will Shafroth, president of the National Park Foundation in a press release.
The celebration begins with National Junior Ranger Day on April 16, where parks will host fun programs including the opportunity for kids to earn a Junior Ranger badge and the chance to become a Centennial Junior Ranger. The week ends with Park Rx Day, where parks will host activities that encourage healthy living and physical and mental well being.
