It's National Park Week, and that means the parks are free April 18-19
Stargazing, Revolutionary War programs and other fun happens this week
And for Saturday and Sunday, they’re also free.
Though most of the National Park Service’s 407 sites are free year-round, the 128 parks that charge a fee – like Yellowstone and Yosemite – will be free those two days.
Check out night-time astronomy parties, daytime Revolutionary War programs, Earth Day parties and family-friendly Junior Ranger activities at national park sites across the country.
