The National Parks Service turned 100 years old this year – and we have a lot to thank that illustrious organization for. They are the keepers of some of Colorado’s most treasured items – the National Parks within our state. Join us as we read about the creation of the Rocky Mountain National Park, established before the Parks Service itself. Learn how it happened, who was involved on all sides and what they thought of the project, and how it was finally made a reality.
