National Park Service turns 100

Hey, here’s another example of government doing good things: the National Park Service turned 100 yesterday. Can you imagine what would have happened to all these amazing places if the government hadn’t become involved?

In celebration, all National Parks are free through Sunday August 28, if you click on the link you can find parks near you and there is a list of events here. You can also look here.  The concept of national parks started when Yellowstone became the first national park in the world in 1872. Go out and celebrate one of the great things the United States has done, make the most beautiful parts of the country accessible to all and something that will last for as long as our government lasts.
