NPS Youth Programs
National parks are places for discovery, exploration, health, & service. We aim to engage youth to be the next generation of environmental stewards.
We are so excited for Entrance Fee-Free Day tomorrow. The fee-free days provide a great opportunity to explore a new place or visit an old favorite. We will see you there! #Nationalparkweek #findyourpark #feefreeday
Each April, we join with the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America's national parks, to celebrate America's treasures. National Park Week is a time to explore amazing places, discover stories of history and culture, help out, and find your park!
Get ready to celebrate National Park Week 2019 from April 20 to 28! Parks across the country will host a variety of special programs and events. To kick off National Park Week, all entrance fees are waived on Saturday, April 20! There are also special days during the week to highlight the different ways you can enjoy your national parks.
Get involved in National Park Week on social media, find an event, or take the Trivia Tuesday Challenge!

Citizen science is the voluntary involvement of the public in scientific research. Citizen scientists can help design experiments, collect data, analyze results, and solve problems. Their work helps professional scientists and resource managers understand parks. Their data help solve real problems and answer real questions. In a nutshell, citizen science is science.
Anyone can be a citizen scientist, regardless of where they’re from. It doesn't matter how old you are or what your background is. All it takes is some time, curiosity, and a sense of wonder. #citizenscience #nps #findyourpark
