When Earth Day returns on April 22, 2012, it will herald the beginning of National Park Week when visitors are invited to enjoy free admission and special events at parks across America from April 21-29, 2012.
Explore America was produced by the National Parks Promotion Council to inspire interest in visiting America’s National Parks. Longer, half-hour and hour versions of the video produced for the U.S. Travel Association’s International Pow Wow and the U.S. Department of State. Special thanks is given to Xanterra Parks & Resorts, Finley Holiday Films, the NPS and many states, gateway communities and national park-related businesses who contributed still and motion images.
