Celebrate Memorial Day with Buddy Bison

From the National Park Trust:


The Memorial Day holiday marks the beginning of warmer weather, outdoor adventures, and the approach of summer days. More importantly it is a day of remembrance and occurs during National Military Appreciation Month. This is a time when we reflect on the things that we value about our country and pay tribute to those who protect it every day.

Celebrate Memorial Day with our mascot Buddy Bison by writing a patriotic shape poem and learning about how Civil War soldiers communicated while on the battlefield. Then virtually explore the National Mall and Memorial Parks in Washington, D.C, and visit park sites like the Vietnam Veterans and World War II Memorials.
