  • National Park Week - Day 6:

    [pro] Every year National Park Week is celebrated in the United States during the month of April. This year National Park Week runs from Saturday, April 19 2014 to Sunday, April 27 2014. It is a chance to hike, learn, share, get active and experience the powerful content knowledge, values, and skills embodied by our Nation’s remarkable cultural, natural, and recreational heritage. There are nearly 400 National Parks coast-to-coast! According to the Presidential Proclamation (2015),
    Our National Parks have allowed generations to discover history, nature, and wildlife in irreplaceable ways. From the highest peaks of Denali to the lowest dips of the Grand Canyon, families around our country enjoy the splendor of the outdoors. Throughout National Park Week, as we celebrate the ways in which our treasured outdoor spaces enrich our lives and uplift our spirits, the National Park Service will again offer free admission to America's National Parks so more people can explore our country's vast natural beauty.
  • State Holiday:

    [ga] In early August 2015, Georgia's governor has removed Confederate Memorial Day and Robert E. Lee's Birthday from the state calendar, replacing them with the designation "state holiday." The decision comes after public discontent with symbols honoring the Confederacy.

Notes:

[pro] This is a special day designated by presidential proclamation.

[ga] This is a State Holiday in the State of Georgia.
