Knitted Wit Craft the Parks 2023

Availability: In stock (5)

It’s time once again for the Knitted Wit National Parks Club!
Every month from May-August, we’ll be releasing 4 new parks colorways. Knitted Wit has exhausted all of the traditional US National Parks, save one, so this year, we’ll be showcasing other National Parks areas, such as National Recreation Areas, Heritage sites, etc. Most will fall under one of 4 categories:

  • National History – Eastern USA
  • National History – Western USA
  • Indigenous Culture
  • Human Rights Leaders/notable people

On the first of each month, Knitted Wit will publish a blog post chock-full of information about each park being showcased that month. Check them all out HERE.

Get your postcard stamped with each purchase, and at summer’s end and receive a Craft the Parks 2023 patch with 4 stamps; receive a Craft the Parks 2023 enamel pin with all 16 stamps.

May features:

Montezuma Castle National Monument, Arizona.  Protects a set of well-preserved dwellings located in Camp Verde, Arizona

Anacostia Park, Washington D.C..  This small but mighty park in the heart of the nation’s capital was developed as a refuge from the hustle and bustle of DC.

Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve, Idaho.  Craters of the Moon is a vast ocean of lava flows with scattered islands of cinder cones and sagebrush.

MLK Jr. National Historical Park, Atlanta, Georgia.  A young boy grows up in a time of segregation . . . A dreamer is moved by destiny into leadership of the modern civil rights movement.  The park includes Martin Luther King Jr.'s childhood home, the “I Have a Dream” World Peace Rose Garden, the first racially-integrated fire station in Atlanta, and Ebenezer Baptist Church, the church where MLK Jr was minister.

June features:

Oregon Caves National Monument, southwestern Oregon. Deep within the Siskiyou Mountains are dark, twisting passages that await your discovery.  Eons of acidic water seeping into marble rock created and decorated the wondrous “Marble Halls of Oregon.”

Bandelier National Monument, New Mexico.  The park protects more than 33,000 acres of rugged yet beautiful canyons and mesa country.  Petroglyphs, dwellings carved into the soft rock cliffs, and masonry walls are evidence of early human existence going back 11,000 years.

Fire Island National Seashore, Suffolk County, New York.  Rhythmic waves, high dunes, ancient maritime forests, historic landmarks and glimpses of wildlife, Fire Island has been a special place for diverse plants, animals and people for centuries.

Tallgrass National Park, Kansas. Established on November 12, 1996, the preserve protects a nationally significant remnant of the once vast tallgrass prairie ecosystem. Here the tallgrass makes its last stand.
