PIPESTONE - Superintendent Glen H. Livermont invites the public to visit Pipestone National Monument during National Park Week, April 15-23.

Entrance fees will be waived for weekends, April 15-16 and 22-23. Special activities will take place for children on April 15, which is National Junior Ranger Day.

Pipestone National Monument offers a ¾-mile walking path, orientation film, museum, picnic area, seasonal pipestone carving demonstrators and a gift shop. Visitors may explore American Indian culture and the natural resources of the tallgrass prairie. Established by Congress in 1937 to protect the historic pipestone quarries, the site is considered sacred by many American Indians. Spanning centuries of use, American Indians continue to quarry pipestone at the Monument.
