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:
Enjoy the spectacular views at Golden Gate Bridge National Recreation Area.
Spot wildlife at sunrise at Canaveral National Seashore.
Swim with the manatee at Crystal River National Wildlife Refugee.
Follow the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail from the Missouri River
to the Pacific Coast.
Hug a tree at Kings Canyon or Sequoia National Parks. (Or just relax on the stump of one of the trees.)
Take a late night walk through the National Mall and Memorial Parks.
Take a selfie at Half Dome in Yosemite National Park.
How will you #FindYourPark?
Thanks to Meghan, Jonathan, and John for allowing me to post their pictures.
