The 10 Best Places You Can’t See Fall Foliage
Looking for the perfect leaf-peeping spot? National parks offer some of the best places to celebrate fall. NPCA put together a feature on the ten best national parks to see the changing colors, based on the excellent recommendations by our friends at National Geographic.
Then Congress closed the national parks.
So instead we offer you … the ten best places where you can’t see the fall foliage.
It’s hard to talk about the impact of lost beauty when 21,000 Park Service employees are indefinitely out of work and local businesses are losing as much as $30 million per day in park-driven revenue—but these are just a few of the public lands the public can’t enjoy as a result of the fiscal standoff.
Urge your members of Congress to re-open parks and support full funding for the Park Service by taking action on NPCA’s website and calling the Capitol Switchboard at 202.224.3121 and asking to speak with your representatives. Not sure who your representatives are? Look them up on NPCA’s website. See more shutdown-related news at www.npca.org/shutdown.
