August 25 is National Park Service Day, and it's a special one this year as it's the 100th anniversary of the service.

Thanks to the National Park Service for a century of recreation, conservation, and historic preservation programs. Minnesota has six national parks: Voyageurs, Mississippi National River & Recreation Area, St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, Pipestone National Monument, North Country National Scenic Trail and Grand Portage National Monument.

To celebrate 100 years of national parks, what songs do you want to hear that reference anything that you might find in the great outdoors for today's 9:30 Coffee Break?
