Wyden Welcomes Secretary Jewell, Encourages Oregonians to Enjoy the Outdoors During National Parks Week –
Parks and Outdoor Recreation Boost Rural Economies

In honor of National Parks Week, Ron Wyden, D-Ore., encouraged Oregonians to enjoy the state’s natural treasures and take advantage of free admission to National Parks this Saturday and Sunday (April 19 and 20).

Wyden also welcomed Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, who will kick off National Parks Week on Saturday, at one of the Seven Wonders of Oregon, Crater Lake.

“It is truly fitting that Secretary Jewell will launch National Parks week at Crater Lake, which is a crown jewel in Oregon’s dazzling array of natural wonders,” Wyden said.

“This week is a reminder of how valuable national parks are, not only for preserving special places, but also as an engine for the economies of rural Oregon. National parks and outdoor recreation more broadly are a cornerstone of a brighter economic future for our rural communities.”

National Parks are a major economic engine for Oregon, generating $58 million annually in the state, and $14.7 billion nationwide, according to the Park Service and independent economists. Outdoor recreation in the state is responsible for 141,000 jobs, according to the Outdoor Industry Association.

Oregon’s national park system includes historical sites like the Lewis and Clark National Historic Park and Fort Clatsop National Memorial in Astoria, and natural wonders such as the Oregon Caves National Monument in Cave Junction and the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in eastern Oregon.
