|Canadian National Parks On The Air (CNPOTA) 2019 Event January 1 until December 31, 2019
Announcing GET YOUR PARK ON! A new North America WWFF Park Event.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The first annual Amateur Radio operating event, Get Your Park ON!, will occur October 14-20, 2018 in celebration of Earth Science Week. The event is open to Amateur Radio operators around the world and is sponsored by the national affiliates of World Wide Flora and Fauna (WWFF) in Canada (VEFF), U.S. (KFF), and Mexico (XEFF). During this on-the-air celebration hams can participate in one of two ways. First, North American hams can be Activators who will set up and operate their radio stations in geological and nature centers, be they places like National or State Parks, National Monuments, protected nature habitats, or National or State Forests. Or they can be Hunters from around the world that will operate from their home stations, search out the Activators, and make over-the-air radio contacts.
Since October 1998, the American Geosciences Institute has organized Earth Science Week, a national and international event to help the public gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Earth sciences and to encourage stewardship of the Earth, a common goal shared by World Wide Flora and Fauna. Both programs encourage their participants to get outside and enjoy nature.
Get Your Park ON! will start October 14 at 0000 UTC and run through October 20 at 2359 UTC.
Adjunct to the Get Your Park ON! on the air activities, Earth Science Week 2018 engages young people and others with learning resources and activities exploring the relationship between the arts and the Earth systems. This year's theme of "Earth as Inspiration" promotes public understanding and stewardship of the planet.
Of special interest to the Amateur Radio community and their families is an "Inspired by Earth" photo contest and an Essay Contest for 6-9th graders.
So everybody Get Your Park ON! and get into the log.
