An American holiday tradition started by President Calvin Coolidge in 1923, the National Christmas Tree Lighting is a great example of the countless ways there are to #FindYourPark. Launched in March 2015, Find Your Park/Encuentra Tu Parque is a public awareness and education movement to inspire people from all backgrounds to connect with, celebrate, and support America’s national parks and community-based programs. Celebrating the National Park Service Centennial and setting the stage for the Service’s next 100 years, #FindYourPark invites people to discover and share their own unique connections to our nation’s natural landscapes, vibrant culture, and rich history.

The Walt Disney Company, including Disney|ABC Television Group which is the home of The Muppets, is a premier partner of the #FindYourPark movement and a lead sponsor of the National Park Foundation’s Open Outdoors for Kids program, aiming to get half a million kids into national parks by 2017.

A special thanks to GE Lighting, Amtrak, Christmas Northeast, Inc., Guest Services, Inc., Hudler Carolina Tree Farms, Loews Madison, Southwest Airlines®, and Washington Marriott at Metro Center for their generous support of the 2015 National Christmas Tree Lighting. www.nationalparks.org
