Bipartisan resolution recognizies National Park Week
News from the offices of Senator Tester and Senator Daines
U.S. SENATE — Bipartisan Senate resolution marking April 16, 2022 through April 24, 2022 as National Park Week passed the U.S. Senate recently.
“Our national parks help set us apart from the rest of the world, and in Montana we have some of the best,” Daines said. “Enjoying Montana’s great outdoors isn’t just a favorite pastime, it’s part of our way of life. This National Park week, I encourage folks to get outside and find their park!”
“National Parks are one of the best ideas that the Federal Government ever had, and we’re lucky to have two of the nation’s finest parks right in our backyard,” said Tester. “Glacier and Yellowstone help drive our $7.1 billion outdoor economy, provide beautiful landscapes for families to make memories, and hold significant importance for Tribal Nations throughout the West and in Montana. As a proud supporter of our National Park System, I encourage everyone in the Treasure State to get outside and enjoy one of our world-class parks this week.”
Montana is home to Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park, and in honor of National Park Week entrance into all national parks was free on Saturday, April 16.
