It was August 25, 1916 when then President Woodrow Wilson signed the National Park Service Act and thus creating the National Park Service. The parks system includes over 400 areas which includes national parks, monuments, military parks, battlefields, historical parks, historical sites, lakeshores, seashores, recreation areas, scenic rivers and trails, and even the White House. Every year, millions of people visit the these areas and last year’s top 10 most visited national parks included 2 in the PNR region: Olympic National Park and Glacier National Park.
