This year marks the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service and the first official National Park in the United States. We are continuously in awe of the natural landscape in this country, and are thrilled to celebrate this landmark occasion.
As former President and ardent supporter of the National Parks Service, Theodore Roosevelt said, “There are no words that can tell the hidden spirit of the wilderness, that can reveal its mystery, its melancholy, and its charm."
His words are a source of inspiration, and as we recognize this milestone, we are reminded to support the preservation of the one-of-a-kind beauty in our national parks. In recognition of the centennial event, we have partnered with select companies to offer a unique National Parks collection.
Parks Inspired Throws by Pendleton

We are working with Pendleton to commemorate the centennial celebration of America’s national parks with a park-themed blanket collection to benefit a restoration campaign. The designs are inspired by the scenery and natural features found within the parks.
In support of preserving the National Park Service, Pendleton has launched a yearlong America’s Treasures campaign, and a portion of the sales, up to $500,000, will be donated to the National Park Foundation to support landmark park projects. By offering these keepsake blankets from Pendleton’s National Parks Collection, we are participating in funding these two important projects to protect and enhance the country’s legacy of national parks.

National Parks Adventure Narrated by Robert Redford
As we celebrate the spirit of our national parks on this 100th Anniversary event, it is important to share in what makes them special. We are honored our founder, actor Robert Redford, lent his voice to narrating the Travel Channel’s documentary National Parks Adventure. The film visits such National Parks as Yellowstone in Wyoming and Montana, the Everglades in Florida, the Redwoods in California and the Arches in Utah.
"National Parks Adventure captures the stunning beauty of our wild places and reminds us these landscapes are an essential part of the human spirit," Mr. Redford said. Mr. Redford’s passion is the foundation for our admiration of the beauty in nature, and we will continue to support his vision.
