Earth Day April 22, 2015! Family fun in our national parks.

In honor of Earth Day (tomorrow, April 22!), I wanted to pass along some great tips and tricks for family fun in our national parks

 
·      Enjoy: There are few more beautiful places to picnic than our national parks, which also offer other ways to spend quality time with your family:
·      Exercise: You can run, hike, bike, swim and even do yoga in our national parks! Bring lots of water and wear light-colored clothing to keep you cool. The Healthy Parks, Healthy People program also offers organized activities for families and children.
·      Learn: National parks are our country’s biggest classroom, protecting and preserving our vast landscapes, history and culture. And Parks for Play is a National Park Foundation program that offers educational family activities in 35 of our national parks.

·      What To Bring:
o   Bring a hat and sunglasses to protect you from the sun
o   Don’t forget a camera
o   Bring a bag or backpack filled with the essentials – water, snacks and a map of the park
