“[My park story] began on a road trip when I was 19 years old,” National Park Service Director Chuck Sams stated in an NPS news release. “I’ve had a lifelong love and respect for the natural world, but it was during a weeklong journey with friends to national parks while serving in the U.S. Navy that I experienced the amazing assortment of national parks and the stories they share. I encourage everyone to use National Park Week as a catalyst to find [your park story].”
Yellowstone National Park will be open on a limited basis for National Parks Week.
