National Park Service
100 Years: Let's celebrate!

The National Park Service turned 100 on August 25, 2016!
The National Park Service invites you to find your park! In celebration of the 100th birthday of the National Park Service in 2016, the Park Service launched a movement to spread the word about the amazing places they manage, the inspirational stories that the national parks tell, our country's natural resources, and our diverse cultural heritage.
Find Your Park is about more than just national parks! It's about the National Park Service working in your community through education programs, community assistance projects, and more. It’s about state parks, local parks, trails, museums, historic sites, and the many ways that the public can connect with history and culture, enjoy nature, and make new discoveries.
Visit to sample centennial events near you, share your stories, and find your park! Participate in Find Your Park Experiences to learn, discover, be inspired, or simply have fun in national parks.
Find Your Park is supported by the National Park Service's nonprofit partner, the National Park Foundation. For more information, visit
