99 Ways to Celebrate the NPS


Yesterday the National Park Service celebrated the 99th birthday of the park system and posted a list of 99 ways to #FindYourPark. The list includes ways everyone can enjoy the parks. Suggestions are as diverse as writing poetry, rock climbing or taking a selfie in one of our National Parks. They also suggest you post pictures or videos on social media using the hashtag #FindYourPark.

Click here to find the complete list of all 99 ideas.

Here’s some examples of ways to celebrate:
