Stand Where Your Heroes Stood

Unpublished

Our national parks provide these types of opportunities for all of us, opportunities to stand where heroes stood.

Stand Where They Stood is a new creative effort supporting the Find Your Park/Encuentra Tu Parque movement that celebrates African American heritage and culture and inspires people to visualize themselves in parks.

Subtitle: 
National Parks have been around longer than us. Many have visited before us, including some of our true heroes. Imagine yourself standing in the same park as where your heroes once stood.

Restoring the Marine Wilderness of Point Reyes National Seashore

Wilderness areas offer visitors unique opportunities for solitude and primitive recreational activities. Far from the reaches of mechanization and electrical conveniences, these pristine places invite visitors to connect with nature and to experience the inspirational and spiritual values of wilderness.

Escape the Daily Grind and Find Your Park

You can tour the fascinating history of Alcatraz Island in San Francisco, go snorkeling on the Wild & Scenic Westfield River in Massachusetts, hike the trails of Washington D.C.’s urban refuge Rock Creek Park, or even go sledding down the dunes at White Sands National Monument in New Mexico.

While many national parks are free 365 days a year, 112 of them charge entrance fees. The exception is on fee-free days. These select days throughout the year give everyone a chance to visit parks free of charge.

Chattahoochee Parks Conservancy

Chattahoochee Parks Conservancy (CPC) was established in 2012 as the official friends group for the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA). This organization is the only nonprofit, philanthropic organization dedicated exclusively to the protection and preservation of the CRNRA and the enhancement of visitor experience. They are currently focused on helping our national park improve its trail system, enhance and develop the National Water Trail and expand volunteer and educational programs. Learn More
