June National Park Service Events
Monday, June 1, 2020 @ 8:00 am - Tuesday, June 30, 2020 @ 5:00 pm MST
The June National Park Service (NPS) theme is “Mapping Your Journey.” Where will your map take you—in person or virtually? Throughout this month NPS encourages us all to plan a park visit, explore migration routes, follow a new trail or parkway, or map our own personal journey in parks. And remember, wherever your journey leads you, please make sure to always #RecreateResponsibly!
Join us digitally as we bring the park experience home with virtual tours, park stories, educational activities, fun facts, and more! Enjoy a highlight of some of our recent posts below and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to join in on the fun.
As you’re mapping your park journey, you might look at trails, roads, and landmarks, but do you ever look to the sky? National park programs funded by WNPA and hosted both day and night give visitors experiences they won’t find anywhere else.
In February, a special event let 130 visitors see Casa Grande Ruins National Monument in a new light—that of 400 glowing luminaries, paid for by WNPA. These tea light-filled paper bags decorated by families and school groups before the event lit the way for nighttime adventures through a preserved ancestral Sonoran Desert community.
The sun is something you see every day, but can’t actually look at . . . or can you? Visitors at Timpanogos Cave National Monument have the rare opportunity to stare at Earth’s nearest star through a solar telescope purchased by WNPA. The park hopes to bring this hands-on exploration of our universe to schools and libraries when they reopen, connecting even more people to our national parks.
These are just a few examples of the work WNPA does for national parks. Our purpose is sustaining the educational, scientific, and historical activities of the National Park Service by providing informative products, services, and programs to park visitors like you. 100% of our financial resources support this goal, but right now we need your help.
