      In an attempt to encourage citizens to travel to the National Parks, Franklin Roosevelt declared 1934 to be National Parks Year. Speaking from Glacier National Park on August 5th, 1934, Roosevelt declared "I am glad to say that there has been a magnificent response and that the numbers visiting our national parks has shown a splendid increase." Posters were heavily involved in this campaign, as were National Parks Year postage stamps, which were released the same year.
