National Parks, Cemeteries and National Forests

While the AVA National Heritage Program has been discontinued, you may still enjoy walking in national heritage sites. This is a list of all National Park Service administered properties, as listed by the NPCA - may not be complete. You may also want to check by state at the National Park Service site.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) National Cemetery Administration maintains 115 national cemeteries in 39 states (and Puerto Rico) as well as 33 soldier's lots and monument sites.


Check for upcoming AVA events or for Year-Round Events that go through national heritage sites. Contact the club contacts for more information.
