Winter Activities Web Site Launched by National Park Service

By SOP newswire

The National Park Service has created a site to provide information to potential visitors on winter activities taking place across the agency.

 “I encourage everyone to remember that national parks aren’t only for summer vacations, but places to visit all year long,” said Director Bomar. “The magnificent places protected by the NPS provide incredible opportunities to experience the marvelous natural and cultural heritage of our country – year round.”

Many parks offer special programs in the winter in addition to their regular programs. For a listing of winter activities and special programs in national parks, visitors are directed to check out http://www.nps.gov/pub_aff/winter2008/activities.htm.
