One of the enduring and defining legacies of the United States is our national parks. Back in 1872 when Congress set aside Yellowstone to become our nation’s first national park, it was unprecedented.
The founding of Yellowstone sparked a worldwide movement. Today more than 100 nations contain some 1,200 national parks or equivalent preserves – 450 of which are in the U.S. and its territories.
This week is National Parks Week – a celebration of the parks’ history and present-day benefits. We encourage you all to get out this week and throughout the year to enjoy and appreciate our public lands.
You can then share your stories and memories with #FindYourPark. You can also wear your support through apparel brands that feature iconic destinations.
