Earth Day April 22

Celebrate Earth Day (April 22) with free admission at any of the nearly 400 national parks. Park admission fees are being waived April 22-26 for the annual observance of National Park Week.

The annual celebration date of April 22 was chosen to help commemorate the birth of famed naturalist and conservationist John Muir, who was born on April 21, 1838. Earth Day was conceived after a Senator's trip in 1969 to Santa Barbara following the devastating oil spill off the Southern California coast.  Learn more here>
