As a part of NPS’s anniversary celebration, admission fees will be waived at parks across the country from August 25 to 28. Other admission-free dates in 2016 include September 24 (National Public Lands Day), and November 11 (Veterans Day).
In case you need further inspiration to get outside, the NPS shared a list of ways to #FindYourPark in 2015, which includes apt advice to “take a sunrise selfie.”
If you can’t make it out to a national park soon, you can view a live stream of Old Faithful, which erupts every 35 to 120 minutes, from your desk. There’s also a live stream of sled dog puppies at Denali National Park. The Yosemite Conservancy has a live stream of Yosemite Falls, one of the tallest waterfalls in North America. Explore.org hosts a live stream of brown bears at Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park. And, the Statue of Liberty has a camera — the torch cam — sponsored by the Statue of Liberty–Ellis Island Foundation.
