In 400+ national parks in the U.S., which one defines…you? That’s the questions National Park Service (NPS) wants you to answer.

Three years in the making, #FindYourPark campaign was officially kicked off today in NYC’s Madison Square (green carpet and all) and loaded with celebs. On Monday, First Lady Michelle Obama led the initiative, asking Americans to “find” their park, including: Alcatraz Island, the Statue of Liberty, Yellowstone…etc.

Redefining the word “park” is also much about targeting a younger generation as today’s park-goers are shifting toward older and whiter demographics of the country. NPS hopes the new campaign will encourage more pride in America’s heritage from the millennials who are encouraged to put down their smartphones.

According to Jonathan Jarvis, National Park Service Director, the campaign is much more about the public’s own stories with their parks.
