How do you shut down a National Park?

national park shutdown

Since midnight last night the National Park Service in the US has been shut down. Due to the Federal shutdown caused by the latest budget impasse the parks themselves have been closed and even the website turned off. In accord with the Interior Department’s contingency plan: “All areas of the National Park and National Wildlife Refuge Systems would be closed and public access would be restricted.”


One response to “How do you shut down a National Park?”

  1. while the trails and woods are still there, we just are not allowed access because? if gov is having problems that is their problem, the woods are still there, no need to deny access, unless one wants to be a bully and treat the people with disrespect and contempt.
