Anyone who has been looking to visit a national park can do so this weekend. . . for free.

National Park Week is April 19-27 this year, and on opening weekend (April 19 and 20), admission into all national parks is free, according to the National Park Service website.

On April 26, National Junior Ranger Day, parks will invite young visitors to “explore, learn, protect” and be sworn in as junior rangers. April 22 is Earth Day, so if you want to roll up your sleeves and pitch in with a project, look for a park where you can help out. It’s a perfect time to simply get outdoors and take a walk in a park,” the website states.
