Free Entrance to National Parks on September 24th

In celebration of National Public Lands Day and Worldwide Day of Play admission will be free to all 395 National Parks. To further enrich your experience, there is even  curriculum for some of the parks. Did you know that many of our national historic sites and natural wonders are National Parks also? For instance, the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial, Antietam National Battlefield, Agate Fossil Beds National Monument, Cape Cod National Seashore, Death Valley National Park, and Aztec Ruins National Monument are all National Parks and would make wonderful field trip destinations for some interesting history or science lessons. I find that one of the joys of homeschooling is having the flexibility to incorporate more field trips into my kids education.
