This weekend marks the start of National Park Week as a way to celebrate our national heritage and with entrance fees waived, encourage visitation. Recent underfunding caused the closure of campgrounds, trails to fall into disrepair, and numerous programs to be cut. In the face constant cutbacks, the National Park Foundation continues to look for new ways to help raise cash, support, and awareness for our great parks.
