100 Years of NPS – Fee Free Weekend!

A Little History Lesson

On August 25th 1916 President Woodrow signed The Act of March 1, 1872 which created the National Parks Service. This act started with Yellowstone National Park when congress established it as a “public park or pleasuring-ground for the benefit and enjoyment of the people” and placed it “under exclusive control of the Secretary of the Interior.” This movement sparked one of the most important environmental movements to date. The national park movement began and today more than 100 NATIONS contain 1,200 national parks or alike preserved areas. Once the National Parks Service was established on this very day 100 years ago, the department was made responsible for protecting and preserving 35 national parks and monuments.

Why Do We Need NPS?

I mean… In my opinion people can be pretty careless, especially when it comes to our land and environment. The NPS helps to preserve some of the most stunning, fragile, sometimes dangerous and amazing places in the world! Without them there could be a potential chance of these parks getting destroyed by carelessness. Littering, fires, development and more are all being avoided by having the National Parks Service there to keep these lovely places preserved for our enjoyment. They help keep the parks clean and the people safe.

So in honor of the National Parks Service’s 100th Birthday, starting today August 25th – August 28th at all the National Parks there will be a FEE FREE ENTRANCE. So get out there and enjoy this beautiful land!

“The National Park Service turns 100 years old in 2016 and we want everyone to join the party! On 16 days in ’16, all National Park Service sites that charge an entrance fee will offer free admission to everyone.”https://www.nps.gov/planyourvisit/fee-free-parks.htm
