USPS to issue 16 park stamps

The National Park Service will mark its 100th anniversary this year. USPS will begin revealing its park stamp images April 4.

The Postal Service will issue 16 stamps in June to mark the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary.

Each stamp image, representing one iconic national park, will be revealed in alphabetical order during the next three weeks, beginning Monday, April 4.

“These stamps celebrate the 100th anniversary of the national parks and depict the beauty and diversity of these national treasures,” said Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan. “They serve as an inspiration for Americans to visit, learn and to write cherished memories of their trips to these incredible wonders.”

The stamp pane will be issued June 2 at the World Stamp Show in New York City. Dedication ceremonies will take place at or near each of the national parks depicted on the stamps.

“This set of stamps will take people on a journey to some of the most amazing places in the world,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “We are thrilled that the 16 national park stamps issued in ’16 for the centennial depict the variety of parks that collectively tell the story of our country.”
