Tracking #NPSLIVE Events

With more than 200 National Parks now closed to the public, many sites are beginning to do livestream events, bringing their parks to the public during this period of of social separation. I’m going to try and keep track of a running list of these events here and encourage the use of the hashtag #NPSLive to spread the word! All times Eastern.

Tracking NPS Closures

This is an ongoing tracker of closures in the National Park Service due to the ongoing public health crisis. The core of this list is any case where the Park is “substantially closed.” I’m not including those cases where only the visitor center is closed, but the Park can still be substantially visited. Also included are all parks whose grounds are otherwise open, but in states where a shelter-in-place order has been given, effectively restricting travel to that site. Sites with restricted access due to a shelter-in-place order are marked with { }. Additional closure information that does not impact the running total are marked with [ ]. Reopening information is marked with <>.
