Tucson, Ariz. – Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva, the ranking member on the House Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands, today invited Americans to visit many of the nation’s great national parks, monuments and other public spaces free of charge April 21-29 for National Park Week. A full list of participating units by state is available at http://www.nps.gov/findapark/feefreeparksbystate.htm.
“Conserving our great public spaces for the future truly is one of the best ideas this nation has ever had, and the value of that idea is obvious every time we visit a park, a monument, a scenic river or any of the other great place we protect as a country,” Grijalva said. “National Park Week is about making the natural wonders of this country as accessible as possible, and I encourage everyone to take full advantage.”
