National Park Week through April 25

We're into our third day of National Park Week, April 17-25. Have you visited a national park yet? Will you? If you do before the 26th, you'll enjoy free admission.

Like President Obama said:
Our national parks provide safe and affordable opportunities for families and communities to reconnect with nature and have fun together. Our Nation's historical parks, sites, and monuments also enhance quality of life and bolster community vitality in many of America's urban areas. In the spirit of Let's Move, the First Lady's nationwide campaign to tackle childhood obesity, I encourage all Americans to visit our national parks and take part in outdoor activities.
