Today Is The 104th Birthday Of The National Park Service & A Free Day

It was 104 years ago today that President Woodrow Wilson signed the act that created the National Park Service (NPS). A brilliant idea that has grown to over 400 park sites across the United States and its territories. The best way to celebrate the birth of the National Park Service is to get out there and experience all they have to offer, from the vast scenic landscapes and natural wonders of parks like Yellowstone or Death Valley to historical or cultural sites, such as Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park, the only NPS site in the state of Vermont. 

Not only is that a great way to experience and support the NPS, but today is also one of the six free days in 2020. It will cost you nothing to visit any of the parks that normally have an entrance fee and the birthday gift your bringing is yourself.

While you may have taken advantage of free days in the past, this year is a little different. Do not forget that the National Park Service is still handling COVID-19 just like everyone else. Head to the NPS website to find a park to visit, but pay close attention to any restrictions or guidelines each park has in place to make your visit as safe as it can possibly be.
