National Park Week 2012

I found this heart-shaped prickly pear cactus at Saguaro National Park in Arizona this past January

Through Sunday, April 29th, get FREE admission to over 100 National Parks that normally charge an entrance fee. This is a great savings for families traveling to parks like Everglades or Yosemite that regularly charge  per car or per person. Take this opportunity to experience the beauty and wonder of America’s nearly 400 national parks for FREE! National parks across the country are celebrating with special events and encourage people to come visit, get outdoors, and embrace a healthy lifestyle, while also embracing the importance of keeping our parks protected and preserved.

Head to the National Park Service website for details and to see which sites have special programs this weekend.
