This month our calendar features Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

December 2015 National Parks Calendar: Crater Lake National Park, Oregon @CraterLakeNPS @NatlParkService #FindYourPark #FYPyes


Go wild! We’re celebrating parks and protected areas in 2015-2016 with the creation of a calendar archived on Flickr. We’re remixing photos from the parks’ official Flickr accounts and using only the photos with Creative Commons attribution-sharealike licenses, which means all of this legal and obeys copyright laws and showcases the conscious collaboration of open access and open educational resources. The calendars in turn you are free to use and download the images. Just give attribution.

Which parks have Flickr and other social web channel accounts? See our Google Doc.

The take-away from this exercise is two-fold: one is to raise awareness of the parks’ official social web channels and second is to improve understanding of these licenses.

Things you can do with the calendars:

Print them

Embed them

Like them, heart them, love them

Write testimonials for the parks on the Flickr calendars and original photos, on Twitter and anywhere else on the social web where you connect with your favorite parks.

Suggestions please!

We’re looking for more park photos for a 2016 calendar. Suggestions please!
