TBT: Happy Birthday National Park Service. On this day (August 25th), 100 years ago, the National Park Service was born. A few of the visionary leaders we have to thank for our 412 national parks, include: Artist George Catlin, Naturalist John Muir, Presidents Teddy Roosevelt,Woodrow Wilson, and William Taft. Because of this leadership we have special places like: Alaska’s Denali (the photograph), Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains, California’s Yosemite, and the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. Thank you to all conservationists working near and far to make this world a better place through parks. We appreciate you!
