“We cannot enough admire the incomparable patience and fidelity of the soldiery.” – George Washington from Headquarters Valley Forge February 16, 1778
How did October fly by so fast?! Maybe we all spent so much time enjoying the fall foliage and carving our pumpkins that we forgot to keep track of how quickly the end of the month was sprinting toward us! Not to worry though, we have you covered on all the tidbits of national park news that may have whizzed by you.
The second-to-last fee-free day of 2014 is upon us! On Saturday, September 27, all national parks will waive their entrance fees to welcome visitors for National Public Lands Day! Be a part of the nation’s largest single-day volunteer effort and give back to the places that give us so much by lending a hand at a national park near you.
“It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us - that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion…”

From 1997 to 2001, the National Park Service was led by its 15th Director – a leader who was unanimously confirmed and proudly served as the first African American Director of the NPS. As part of our continuing celebration of National African American History Month, we spoke with Director Robert G. Stanton and asked him to reminisce about his inspiring career.
We’re excited to celebrate Presidents Day this year, especially since the grand occasion calls for another stretch of fee-free days! Do you have any plans for visiting a national park that pays homage to a great American leader of yesteryear?
