National Junior Ranger Day is April 16!  There will also be an Earth Day Volunteer park clean-up on Saturday, April 23.  Check our website for more information about this and other Centennial events:

“During National Park Week, and throughout the centennial year, we invite everyone from near and far to visit Craters of the Moon and experience all that we have to offer” said Park Superintendent, Wade Vagias.

National Park Week is a great opportunity to explore the countless ways there are to #FindYourPark. Launched in March 2015, Find Your Park/Encuentra Tu Parque is a public awareness and education movement to inspire people from all backgrounds to connect with, celebrate, and support America’s national parks and community-based programs. Celebrating the National Park Service Centennial and setting the stage for the Service's next 100 years, #FindYourPark invites people to discover and share their own unique connections to our nation's natural landscapes, vibrant culture, and rich history. Visit to learn more about National Park Week and other events taking place throughout the year.
