A more extensive post will appear after the semester ends in a couple of weeks and my daily schedule begins to resemble something normal again. Until then – exciting news! The National Park Foundation has teamed up with the National Park Service to bring us “National Park Week.” The purpose of the event, which runs from today until April 29th, is to raise awareness of the national park system and to also encourage people to get outside and be active. This entire week, all of the national park system units are waiving their entrance fees. So, find the closest NPS unit and go enjoy some free outdoor recreation!
