Fresh Air & Nature are Free!
by Alice Shaffer

Makes one think.....Isn't fresh air & nature already free?  Yes they are free.  I am referring to the US National Park Services .  April 17-April 25 is National Park Week with the US Park Services!  This also happens to fall during the 40th anniversary of Earth Day on Tuesday April 20. The Blue Ridge Parkway is also celebrating its' 75th anniversary!

Saturday April 24th is also National Junior Ranger Day!  Those that participate will receive a certificate patch or pin.

All entrance fees to the 392 US National Parks will be waived during this coming week.  Take this time to go exploring your local National Parks.   To find one near you please visit the National Park Services List.

The National Park Foundation has some great things written up for National Park Week. You can go there and punch in your zip code to see what National Parks are located near you.  I was just at tow the other week: Ford's Theater and The Stone House in Washington DC.

The National Parks have so much to offer from day trips to overnight trips.  There is probably one within a few hours drive or right next door to you.   Take advantage of National Park Week! 

Enjoy the fresh air and the nature that is around you this coming week in celebration of our National Parks!

I love it, Alice. Thanks.

I do find where I live it's hard to tell what's part of the NPS, what's state, and what's local. We do have to pay fees to park in most of the parks here.
