Free admission for National Park Service birthday

The National Park Service is almost a century old and that means a gift is in store for citizens.

The National Park Service is celebrating its 99th birthday on August 25, 2015 with free admission, not including amenity or activity fees, to its 408 sites nationwide.

In preparation for the centennial celebration next year, the National Park Service also partnered with the National Park Foundation to help citizens nationwide Find Your Park. Visitors are encouraged to share their park experiences across social media with #FindYourPark.

“These national treasures belong to all of us, and we want everyone – especially the next generation of park visitors, supporters and advocates – to discover and connect with their national parks,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis.

The National Park Service was created in 1916 when President Woodrow Wilson signed it into legislation.
