The National Park Service, which has enabled millions to discover America’s natural treasures, will commemorate 100 years of stewardship in 2016. The National Park Service's Centennial goal is to connect and create the next generation of park visitors, supporters, and advocates. Minnesota’s Voyageurs National Park, and its partner Voyageurs National Park Association, will celebrate the Centennial locally with a range of special events, programs, and initiatives throughout the year.
