Happy birthday to the National Park Service!

For 100 years, our national parks have provided a reprieve from city life, important education about conservation and some pretty memorable adventures.

“The sound of the wolves howling, probably a dozen or so, in an environment where sound carries for more than a mile – and it went on for 15 or 20 minutes – was one of the most haunting experiences I’ve ever had in my life,” Will Shafroth, president of the National Park Foundation, told Pete Dominick.

In celebration of the centennial, Dominick brought together some of the best and brightest in the field for a National Parks Summit to share their most memorable park moments, like Shafroth’s encounter with wolves at Voyageurs National Park in Northern Minnesota, while also highlighting the importance of preserving our parks.
