TUPELO, MS – As the National Park Service (NPS) celebrates 101 years of protecting and preserving the nation’s parks and monuments, all Americans are encouraged to get out and #FindYourPark. Each one of the 417 national parks is a thread in the tapestry that tells the story of our country – its beautiful landscapes, diverse culture, and rich heritage. Throughout the year, the NPS invites everyone to discover and share their own unique connections to our public lands.
During the month of April 2017, the Natchez Trace Parkway will celebrate a sampling of national parks. A photo exhibit at the Parkway Visitor Center will feature NPS sites that are fan favorites of Parkway employees.
This exhibit is free to the public. The Visitor Center is located at milepost 266 on the Natchez Trace Parkway, near Tupelo, Mississippi. For additional information, please call (800) 305-7417.
