By Audrey Cooney

This week, Sparky got to visit the Wright Brothers National Memorial. Located in North Carolina’s Outer Banks, the memorial commemorates Wilbur and Orville Wright’s historic experiments in aviation, including the “first flight” of 1903. This summer, the National Parks Service will also celebrate an important anniversary- 100 years of looking after America’s national parks.

Sparky turned 65 on March 18, 2016, and we have been pulling out all the stops to help him celebrate! He’s created a bucket list of 65 activities and events he’d like to accomplish from now through October. As he checks them off his list, we’ll make sure to share them with you. Some of Sparky’s wishes are pretty lofty, while others are just fun or a bit silly. Check in weekly to see where he goes and what he’s up to!
