Celebrate the Park Service’s Anniversary with a Lovely Tribute

Celebrate the Park Service in Tucson, AZDo you love nature, and take any chance you can to explore the great outdoors? If so, you won’t want to miss a chance to celebrate the National Park Service’s 100th Anniversary, this summer. Throughout July, the Joel D. Valdez Main Library will be hosting a special art collaboration in honor of the service’s anniversary, which will actually take place on August 25, 2016. The exhibit includes fiber art by southern Arizona students, which have been created to honor the remarkable landscapes, wildlife and other beauty of Saguaro National Park, here in southern Arizona. This event is being sponsored by the nonprofit organization, Friends of Saguaro National Park, and you can catch it for free, during the library’s normal business hours.

What You’ll See at This Celebration

There will also be mini quilts honoring this special occasion, and the beautiful parks here in Arizona, on display on the wooden towers. You won’t want to miss this chance to celebrate Arizona, and the entire country’s, incredible parks during the month of July!
