           National Parks Week runs Saturday, April 21, through Sunday April 29, and Golden Spike National Historic Site will celebrate this year’s theme, “Picture Yourself in a National Park.”

Special events and activities include Volunteer Day on April 21, Earth Day on April 22, and Junior Ranger Day on April 28.

Junior Ranger Day begins at 10 a.m., with a ranger program titled, “Around the Last Spike in 30 Minutes,” which will be repeated at 2 and 4 p.m. Other programs will be held throughout the day, including “Four Special Spikes,” at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., and an engineer’s tour of the engine house at 1 p.m.

Throughout the week, Golden Spike NHS will be showing different videos about other National Park Service sites in and around Utah.  Entrance fees will be waived at those sites during the week, providing a great opportunity for Americans to visit a park.

Golden Spike visitor center opens at 9 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m.  The park is located 32 miles west of Brigham City via Hwy. 13 and 83.
