Free ‘Owner’s Guide to America’s National Parks’


2014_NPF_OwnersGuideRVing families are frequent visitors to America’s national parks. An excellent free resource is the online site: National Parks Foundation. It features an abundant array of information on America’s national treasures … some of OUR most beautiful public lands.

There are links to free downloadable national park Owner’s Guides that “are filled with travel tips and inside information on what not to miss. It’s your one-stop resource to discover your national parks.”

Another link, ‘Find Your Park’ invites visitors “to see that a national park is more than just a place — it can be a feeling, a state of mind, or a sense of American pride. Beyond vast landscapes, the campaign highlights historical, urban, and cultural parks, as well as National Park Service programs that protect, preserve and share nature, culture, and history in communities nationwide.

As a reminder, Great Outdoors Month continues with ‘Get Into Your Sanctuary’ Day (June 27-28).  “As a destination for ocean recreation, few places on the planet can compete with the diversity of the National Marine Sanctuary System, which protects America’s most iconic natural and cultural marine resources.  Fortunately, the vast majority of all national marine sanctuary waters are open to recreational fishing, diving, surfing, swimming, kayaking and much more!  NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries is celebrating how sanctuaries succeed in promoting conservation while allowing compatible recreational activities by hosting a system-wide series of National ‘Get into Your Sanctuary’ Day events.  For more information, visit”
