MORE Features & Advice
Each day of National Park Week is themed for celebrating everyone that makes our national parks special. From Military Monday, which celebrates how NPF and NPS preserve military history and help veterans, to B.A.R.K. Ranger Day, which celebrates all the roles man’s best friend plays in the national parks.
There are also other ways, beyond social media, to celebrate National Park Week. Volunteers across the nation are encouraged to clean their parks, plant trees and assist archeologists. Learn more about how to give thanks to the awesome National Park Ambassadors near you, or how to become one here.
Children can also become Junior Rangers and join their area’s closest Junior Ranger program or earn their badge at home. The program encourages children to explore and learn with the Junior Ranger Angler and Junior Ranger Railroad Explorer programs.
