National Park Week officially kicks off tomorrow, April 18, and if you're wondering how to celebrate, the National Park Service and National Park Foundation have some ideas.
John Muir National Historic Site
John Muir, perhaps the best friend the national parks ever had, died on Christmas Eve, 1914. Here are some numbers that tell the story of the National Historic Site created to preserve and interpret the place he called home for the last 24 years of his life.
On Thanksgiving Eve our thoughts naturally turn to food. Let’s see how you do on this week’s quiz, which deals with edible plants growing in national parks. (We’ll leave hunting and fishing out of this one, since we plan to put together separate quizzes for these activities.) Answers are at the end.
You won’t need to be a farmer or rancher to do well on this week’s quiz, which focuses on agricultural endeavors and associated terms. Answers are at the end. If we catch you peeking, we’ll make you milk the goats and slop the pigs.
