Today is 106th Anniversary of the National Park Service

from the National Park Service

On August 25, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Organic Act creating the National Park Service “to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wildlife therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.”
For 106 years, National Parks have been the backdrop to breathtaking views, stories of who we are, and places to inspire and create lasting memories. Today, more than 400 national parks preserve our nation’s treasures and past for us and future generations to learn about and explore.
