Did you know that the National Park Service (NPS) turns 100 this year?
On August 25, 1916 President Woodrow Wilson signed the Organic Act to create the NPS, which is a federal bureau responsible for protecting national park and monument land. The NPS was the first of its kind, and countries around the world have since then followed suit creating their own national parks and management systems. During this past century the NPS has served more than 400 areas covering more than 84 million acres in all fifty states. It has worked to maintain these naturally and historically significant lands open to public access, and provide educational and recreational opportunities for all people.
Join us at Delaware North in celebrating the accomplishments of the NPS over the past 100 years! There are various centennial celebrations happening at several national park locations— and we will report on these events at GreenPath News in the months leading up to August 25th in our “Centennial Series.” Stay tuned to learn more about the fun centennial events happening this summer!
