treasures and breathtaking beauty of our national parks for over three decades.
In celebration of the National Park Service Centennial in 2016, the National Park Foundation recently launched the Find Your
Park movement, a public awareness and education campaign celebrating the milestone anniversary and setting the stage for
the next 100 years. Find Your Park invites people everywhere to discover their own personal connections to parks. Engaging
not only those who already know and love the parks, but also the next generation of visitors, supporters, and advocates, Find
Your Park invites people to see that a park can be more than just a place. It can be a feeling, a unique connection to our shared
history, a sense of community, or the opportunity to experience a view or a moment in time from multiple perspectives. The
National Park Foundation and its partners will drive broad awareness, deepen engagement, and increase support for America’s
national parks and the work of the National Park Service.
We can’t wait to introduce you to the incredible sights, sounds, moments, landscapes, and history shared and preserved
in America’s national parks. Just look for the
