Franklin D. Roosevelt once said that “nothing so American as our national parks,” and he was right. These are natural treasures where wild life and nature thrive and offer us a escape from our busy world. Arkansas has eight beautiful National Park Service sites and trails to explore, an each has a unique tale to tell. - And, Did You Know? – There is a National Program called “Every Fourth Grader in a Park,” which grants every fourth grader in the U.S. and his or her family free admission to all the national parks for one year! The NPS also offers a Junior Ranger Program, which is not just for kids.
