Each spring, the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation, invite everyone to celebrate National Park Week. This year, from April 20 – 28, YOU are invited to get to know your national parks.
Did you know…America’s national parks include more than:
- 84 million acres of spectacular scenery, historic landmarks and cultural treasures
- 17,000 miles of trails
- 43,000 miles of shoreline
- 27,000 historic and prehistoric structures
- 100 million museum items
- 12,000 campsites
Did you know…that from Monday, April 22 – Friday, April 26, the national parks, including Steamtown National Historic Site here in Northeastern Pa., waive all entrance fees? So, whether it is your first trip, or the latest of many memorable park experiences, there couldn’t be a better time to get out and explore!
