Find Your Park is a new campaign by the U.S. National Parks service. The purpose of the campaign is to increase awareness of National Parks and their programs. To that end, Find Your Park offers an interactive map of hundreds of national parks and public lands. You can search for a park or public land by name and or location. Clicking on the park’s name in the map will take you to more information about the programs at that park.
If you visit one of the parks, Find Your Park encourages you to share your pictures and videos of the experience with the hashtag #FindYourPark. You can also upload your pictures and videos directly to the Find Your Park website.
Applications for Education
As the weather warms and you start to think about outdoor activities for your children or your students, take a look at Find Your Park. Find Your Park could help you discover educational programs happening in a national park near you.
