It’s National Park Week!

National-park-week-2016.jpgNational Park Week is this week! From April 16th to the 24th, you can visit all national parks for free.

This article shows some really cool early anthropological sketches of some of our country’s national parks. Anthropologists have been involved in the creation of National Parks, and have been instrumental in the preservation of natural and historical resources that you can still see in the parks today.

You can visit the National Park Service website here to find a park near you. The NAA and Human Studies Film Archives have films, records, and photographs from many national parks across the United States, and many are available online. Happy exploring!
