If you are unable to make it this month, don't worry! You’ll have some other chances later this year - August 25 - August 28 for the National Park Service Birthday; September 24th for National Public Lands Day and November 11th for Veterans Day.
“It’s about making great connections,” the parks service says on its website announcing the celebration, “exploring amazing places, discovering open spaces, enjoying affordable vacations, and enhancing America’s best idea—the national parks!”
The following are National Parks in Colorado:
- Black Canyon of the Gunnison in Montrose, CO
- Great Sand Dunes in Mosca, CO
- Mesa Verde in Cortez and Mancos, CO
- Rocky Mountain in Estes Park and Grand Lake, CO
