"See the sky, touch a tree, feel the air and find yourself! Europe’s natural parks – a living health spa for stress fatigued Europeans." This event, organized by EUROPARC, takes place on 24th May 2012 in more than 50 parks in 20 countries. In these financially stressful times, people are looking for healthy, peaceful experiences that take them away from their day-to-day worries. Especially ones that are not only good for the body and soul but also ones that do not strain the family budget.
EUROPARC has the answer – a free sensory experience in nature! Nature and National Parks across Europe invite you to celebrate nature, to see the sky, touch a tree, feel the air and find yourself. Hundreds of events from the West to the East of Europe will remind Europeans of the great free resources our protected areas consist of. A whole host of exciting events are taking place to celebrate European Day of Parks on 24th May 2012.
