It was this day in 1916 that the National Park Service was set up to care for and run our common space nationwide – from parks to memorials and monuments.  The National Park Service operates under oversight from the U.S. Department of the Interior.  You can find out more information about the National Park Service by clicking here.

Today is a great day to remember that these green spaces are great for getting out and getting active.  With the summer days coming soon to a close and daylight hours getting shorter and shorter, there’s no time like the present to take advantage of these great, fun and unique spaces!  And while you are out exploring, don’t forget to hydrate.
