Week 39: Celebrate the 104th anniversary of the National Park Service by getting outside. 

Take a trip to one of the nation’s more than 400 national park units and skip the entry fee on Aug. 25 in celebration of the Park Service’s 104th anniversary. Not sure where to go? We love Joshua Tree National Park, Acadia National Park, Death Valley National Park and Sequoia National Park, but there are so many to choose from. Before you go, check out tips for how to #recreateresponsibly.  While you’re at the parks, pay special attention to leaving no trace and take a moment to appreciate the natural landscapes. Time outside is shown to help reduce stress and anxiety. Before you go, head over to REI’s Camping Project to find bookable campgrounds by location and discover activities to do in the parks, like hiking, trail-running and more.

Take part: Aug. 23–29, 2020

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
