The following is a press release from the National Park Service.
INDEPENDENCE, CA — The 46th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage coincides with National Park Week 2015 and the launch of the Find Your Park public awareness and education campaign surrounding the centennial anniversary of the National Park Service in 2016.
Manzanar National Historic Site invites visitors to participate in a weekend of special events in conjunction with the Manzanar Committee’s 46th Annual Pilgrimage. Find Your Park invites the public to see that a national park can be more than a place—it can be a feeling or an experience. Pilgrimage weekend offers opportunities to Find Your Park through art, music, dance, and films.
“The Find Your Park campaign encourages everyone to find their parks and share their stories. We’d love to have people share their stories of Manzanar and other Eastern Sierra parks on the findyourpark.com web site,” said Superintendent Bernadette Johnson.
