Rock on! National Park Service plans centenntial bashes in the bushes
from NBC News
The National Park Service is turning 100 this year, and many parks are planning to celebrate the centennial of Woodrow Wilson putting pen to paper to "conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life therein and … leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations." The park service's official birthday is Aug. 25, but the festivities already are underway in many of the nation's 407 parks. And some other organizations are jumping on the bandwagon to mark the agency's passage into triple digits.
