National Parks are a wonderful way to get into nature and learn all about our nation’s history (both man-made history and the history of the natural world). There are 61 National Parks in the US.
The National Parks Service wants everyone to explore the outdoors, and they are offering free admission to everyone on the following dates in 2020:
- January 20: Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.
- April 18: First day of National Park Week
- August 25: National Park Service Birthday
- September 26: National Public Lands Day
- November 11th: Veterans Day
If you have a fourth grader, the National Parks Service wants you and the kiddos to visit the parks! For more details, click here.
