We need to band together to be ready. As soon as the #shutdown ends, the @NationalParkService will need both financial resources and volunteers to help repair the damages our national treasures are experiencing. . If you cherish these places as we do, follow the link in our bio to act now. . #WeAreParks . [πŸ“·: @petrifiedforestnps / Andrew V. Kearns]
When the shutdown ends, we will work with the @NationalParkService to determine its immediate needs. Garbage and sanitation issues may just be the tip of the iceberg. Natural habitat restoration, graffiti removal, and other volunteer efforts will also likely be top priorities. For parks' sake, act now so we can be ready when the government reopens – follow the link in our bio. . #WeAreParks #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque . [πŸ“·: Bachir Badaoui at @pointreyesnps ]

When you look back at 2018, which #NationalParks hosted some of your favorite memories? .

Tell us your favorite 2018 park memory below and then consider how that memory makes you feel. Consider how important it is for others to share that feeling too – to understand the need to protect the place that makes that feeling possible.

The federal government shutdown will impact the over 400 #NationalParks in different ways. . The @NationalParkService has indicated that park roads, lookouts, trails, and open-air memorials will generally remain accessible to visitors (though this may change without notice), but there will be no NPS-provided visitor services. . If you had plans to visit a park, please be sure to check the park’s website for more information. More in the link in our bio. . #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque #WeAreParks .
