Celebrate National Park Week at Southern California parks

The Four Percent


Fun fact: Did you know California has the most national parks? Yeah, we got nine.

Another fun fact: One of the national parks in California is a group of islands, and you can get there from L.A. in a couple hours or so.

If you can’t make it out, sorry. Below are some photos.

The National Park Service has themed days, including National Junior Ranger Day Saturday.

For more detailed information on National Park Week, you can visit the NPS website.
