This annual event offers a perfect opportunity to explore the diverse natural, cultural, and historical treasures preserved within America’s national parks. The week also provides a unique chance to appreciate the extensive efforts taken to maintain these pristine environments. Coinciding with Earth Day, National Park Week serves as a powerful reminder of the critical need for sustainable practices and a deep respect for our natural ecosystems.

As an officially designated International Dark Sky Park, Death Valley NP offers exceptional stargazing opportunities. Its remote location, far from city lights, provides some of the darkest skies, ideal for viewing meteor showers, the Milky Way, and other celestial phenomena, —conditions permitting. Whether you’re a seasoned astronomer or a casual observer, the park’s vast, unobstructed views promise an awe-inspiring experience under the stars.
