No matter how delightful your deck, sometimes you need to vary your view. That’s why Thompson’s®Water Seal® is offering the chance to win one of five annual passes to more than 2,000 National Parks and federal recreational sites in the “Just Park It” summer contest.

Simply travel to the Thompson’s Water Seal Facebook page (www.facebook.com/thompsonswaterseal) between now and August 15 and follow all of the instructions for completing the online form, including providing a short written entry about which National Park you would like to visit and why. Five winners will receive the America the Beautiful Pass, valued at $80, valid for 12 months. Each pass admits one car, with up to four adults, for limitless visits throughout the year. (There is no admission charge for children under 16.)

Stumped for a reason why you should enter? How about getting a chance to see:

  • The highest point in North America, Mt. McKinley at 20,320 feet (Denali National Park and Preserve)
  • The lowest point in the Western Hemisphere, Death Valley National Park, CA
  • The longest cave system in the world with more than 345 miles mapped (Mammoth Cave National Park, KY)
  • The nation’s deepest cave at 1,593 feet deep (Carlsbad Caverns National Park, NM)
  • The deepest lake (1,932 feet) in the United States (Crater Lake National Park, OR)
  • The second and third largest natural bridges in the world (Natural Bridges National Monument, UT)

The Thompson’s Water Seal VIP Program (Very Important Places) supports the preservation of structures at some of America’s premier national parks, including Glacier National Park, Grand Canyon National Park and Yellowstone National Park. Thompson’s®Water Seal®Deck & House Solid Latex Stain is also used to protect the Cave of the Winds decks at Niagara Falls State Park. Videos documenting the brand’s efforts in the parks can be seen on the Facebook page.

Spend a few minutes at Facebook, and you could spend an entire year exploring more than 84 million acres of national parks, monuments, battlefields, military parks, historical parks, historic sites, lakeshores, seashores, recreation areas, scenic rivers and trails in every state (except Delaware). You’ll return to your own backyard with a whole new world view.
