National Parks ServiceDid you know July is National Parks Month? Well, it sure is!

July is a perfect time to explore everything there is in local and national parks and recreation areas. The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is challenging people to explore and discover all the wonders, including the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM stuff) behind parks and recreation. Did you know there are 58 National Parks? We all know the marquee parks – Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, and Yosemite – but do you know about the other, not-quite-as-famous ones? You can read about this in an article and find out where all those super cool ones are, the ones with coral reefs, hanging glaciers, and untouched backcountry.

As the NRPA says, “A Lifetime of Discovery”…don’t wait, go check them out!
