Celebrate the National Park Service’s 105th Birthday: In- Park and Virtual Programs

August 25, 2021 marks the 105th birthday of the National Park Service. To celebrate this milestone, national parks across the country are hosting a month-long celebration – and waiving entrance fees on the anniversary date. Building on the theme “Park Scrapbooks,” visitors are invited to share videos, artwork, poetry, photos and other memorabilia on social media using tags such as #ParkScrapbooks and #FindYourPark. For those planning to visit parks in person, park rangers are sharing lists of their “insider tips.” To learn about in-person and virtual events, check the calendar of events. If you want to search by location and activity, you can find your park here. You can also join in the birthday celebration from home or from anywhere in the world – and “find virtual ways to stay connected with more than 400 national parks across the country and park party games that you can do anywhere, anytime.” For example, you might “Make Your Own National Park Bingo” or “Create Your Own Park Logo or Arrowhead.”   Find out more about how NPS Celebrates!
