National Park Service Celebrates 100 Years

Today the National Park Service celebrates 100 years. Thank you for providing me with hundreds of hours of self reflection about our history and what it means to be a citizen of the United States. Thank you to all my friends who have devoted their careers to preserving our most important historic and natural landmarks and educating the public.

    As a long-time, but now former, National Park Service employee I agree completely. Thank you, NPS, for the gift of reflection, remembrance and maintaining the value of “place.” Happy 100th!
