National Park Week and Protecting the Planet Day

April 17 - April 25

Each April, during the presidentially proclaimed National Park Week, the U.S. National Park Service and the National Park Foundation invite the world to explore America’s treasured places.

In celebration of National Park Week, and of the Fulbright Program’s 75th anniversary, we invite you to experience the beauty and history of national parks in the United States through the photos, stories, and lived experiences of Fulbrighters.

On social media: Join us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram this week for highlights of Fulbright alumni and participants across all programs who have worked in or found a connection to national parks all around the world.

On #FriendshipFriday: Celebrate National Park Week with our friends at the U.S. National Park Service by sharing your favorite park visit, conservation project, or international exchange picture on social media during Friendship Friday. Don’t forget to use the hashtags #FriendshipFriday, #NationalParkWeek, and #Fulbright75.

On April 23, Protecting the Planet Day: Fulbrighters in the United States and around the world are seizing the opportunity to meet the many challenges that the climate crisis presents. Fulbrighters serve as environmental stewards, develop innovative policies and technologies, and collaborate with colleagues in their communities and across borders to contribute to a more sustainable way of life. In recognition of Earth Day, and to celebrate National Park Week with our friends at the U.S. National Park Service, Fulbright announces Protecting the Planet Day on Friday, April 23rd with two special events: a Fulbright Impact in the Field alumni panel on climate change and environmental justice and an exploration of Crater Lake National Park with Fulbright Specialist John Duwe and Klamath tribal elders..
