National Park Week, April 21 to 29, 2018, is America's largest celebration of national heritage. It's about making great connections, exploring amazing places, discovering open spaces, enjoying affordable vacations, and enhancing America’s best idea—the national parks! It's all happening in your national parks.
The National Park Service is once again partnering with the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America's national parks, to present National Park Week. The theme for 2018 is “Park Stars,” celebrating everything from starry skies to superstar volunteers, park features, and resources. Parks, programs, and partners nationwide invite people everywhere to explore stories, experiences, and sites that brighten the National Park System and public lands.
In addition to the 51 National Park locations (see list below) in the Chesapeake region, here are some highlights during National Park Week:
