Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area is joining the National Park Service to celebrate some big upcoming milestones. Next year, Freedom’s Frontier turns 10 year old, while the National Park Service celebrates their Centennial Anniversary.
To celebrate, the National Park Foundation is embarking on the Find Your Park campaign. Freedom’s Frontier will be participating in Find Your Park, as well its National Heritage Area companion, Find Your Story. This campaign isn’t just a one-way street! We want to know how you Find Your Park! Use the hashtag #FindYourPark and/or #FindYourStory on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram to share how you explore the heritage area. Don’t forget to follow Freedom’s Frontier on those social media outlets and tag us in your post!
The National Park Foundation and NPS developed a list of 99 ways to Find Your Park. Over the next few days, we will share how you can do all of those 99 things in Freedom’s Frontier and our sister heritage areas. We invite you to use these suggestions to discover new ways to explore the heritage area or as inspiration to create your own challenge to celebrate 10 years of Freedom’s Frontier! Maybe you’ve always wanted to visit every courthouse in our 41 counties like these ladies are doing in Missouri or walk across the heritage area like one of our Board Members did in Kansas. Perhaps you want to visit every historic house museum in the heritage area or even learn a fun fact about every one of our counties. For even more challenge inspiration, browse through the list of Kansas Sampler Explorers Club Quests or learn about the Kansas Bucket List.
Whatever your challenge, don’t forget to tell us about it on social media or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for joining in as we “Party Like We’re 9 and 99!”
