Get outside and satisfy your curiosity - all United States National Parks are offering free admission on Saturday, April 18 and Sunday, April 19 to kick off National Park Week. From Yosemite to the Grand Canyon, visitors will be able to explore America's most treasured natural resource free of charge.

Many parks will offer special Park Week and Earth Day programs and activities throughout the week. On Saturday, young visitors are invited to be sworn in as junior rangers on National Junior Ranger Day. Park visitors are invited to share their park experiences on social media with the hashtag #FindYourPark.

After your national park excursion, be sure to tune into Discovery Channel's Elevation Weekend.
