“This Monday, January 15, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a federal holiday. It’s also a fee-free day in all of America’s more than 400 national parks.
So if you have the day off on Monday, why not spend it in a national park near you? Discover a new adventure at FindYourPark.com. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the beauty, history, and heritage of our nation.
Dr. King believed in the promise of America. He dedicated his life to creating freedom and opportunity for all. You can celebrate his legacy at the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site in Atlanta, reflect on the power of his words by visiting the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C., or honor those who progressed the civil rights movement at sites like Selma-to-Montgomery National Historic Trail.
Wherever your plans take you, we hope you can reflect on what freedom and equality mean to you as you experience the national parks.
Your support for the National Park Foundation helps care for all of America’s national parks. They are yours to enjoy and appreciate. So this Monday, bring a friend and bring your curiosity, because the parks are fee-free!”
