INTERIOR (AP) - Outdoor enthusiasts can gain free admission to Badlands National Park this coming week as part of a celebration commemorating the National Park Service's 100th anniversary.

The park is waiving entrance fees through April 24.

Park Superintendent Mike Pflaum says the park invites everyone to attend its many programs and events being offered throughout the year. He asks people to take a moment to reflect on what the American people have accomplished in establishing and maintaining the national park system over the past century.

The promotion is part of a program called Find Your Park, a public awareness and education movement to inspire people from all backgrounds to connect with, celebrate and support America's national parks and community-based programs.
