Photo: Picture yourself in a National Park!

This year, National Park Week is taking place from April 21-29 and the theme is all about picturing yourself in a park. Check out the National Park Service celebration and find out how to get out and explore this week, during which there is free admission! Here at Conservation + Recreation, our staff love to get out and play, paddle or hike. This week on our facebook page, we’ll be sharing some of our pictures out in parks, whether local, state or national. Do you have a favorite shot to share? We would love it if you took a moment to post your pictures and encourage us all to picture ourselves there as well. The following national parks can be found in Illinois: Illinois & Michigan Canal National Heritage Corridor, Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail, Lincoln Home National Historic Site, and Mormon Pioneer National Historic Trail.
