If #PunxsutawneyPhil's prediction is correct, we'll be ready to greet an early #spring when it arrives. But for now, we won't wish away #winter's beauty.

.
The snow-covered terrain of #NationalParks beckon to cross-country skiers and snowshoers. With proper research and preparation, you can safely #FindYourPark in winter wonderlands across the #NationalParkSystem.

What's your favorite way to enjoy this season in parks?

Knowing they're back fills us with joy, relief, and determination. Together with our partners from the @NationalParkService, we’ll continue to make certain that these national treasures – all of the places, stories, experiences, and sights they offer us – are restored and preserved.
.
We have a commitment to ensure all people understand the importance of our #NationalParks. We must ensure that they will be protected and enjoyed for generations to come. It’s a mission we’re proud to realize every day.
.
Thank you to every one of you who appreciate these places as we do. Thank you for being a part of this remarkable community of #NationalPark champions.

History was made in this home. A family grew here. A legacy advanced here. And now – thanks to private support through @GoParks – another piece of American history will forever be learned here.
.
This home, in #Atlanta’s historic Vine City neighborhood, was where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and #CorettaScottKing raised their family. To ensure that this and future generations will be able to experience the profound stories connected to this place, the #NationalParkFoundation purchased and transferred the home to the @NationalParkService to be preserved as part of @martinlutherkingjrnps.
.
#MLK’s life and legacy will echo throughout time. This place will invite visitors to understand how his work as a minister and #CivilRights leader were intertwined with and fueled by his roles as a father and husband.
.

We need to band together to be ready. As soon as the #shutdown ends, the @NationalParkService will need both financial resources and volunteers to help repair the damages our national treasures are experiencing.

If you cherish these places as we do, follow the link in our bio to act now.

When the shutdown ends, we will work with the @NationalParkService to determine its immediate needs. Garbage and sanitation issues may just be the tip of the iceberg. Natural habitat restoration, graffiti removal, and other volunteer efforts will also likely be top priorities. For parks' sake, act now so we can be ready when the government reopens – follow the link in our bio.

If only National Bird Day (today) were as popular as #BirdBox! You'd have a lot more picture of binoculars in your feed and far fewer blindfold jokes. 🦅🦆🦉

Take a chance in 2019 and do what you've never done before! Visit the #NationalPark you've never been to, try the activity you've always said you would, and #FindYourPark with someone who hasn't been able to experience it before. This year is full of possibilities! For more inspiration on new ways to experience your parks this year, head to the link in our bio.
