Proclamation 7772--National Park Week, 2004


 April 16, 2004

 By the President of the United States

 of America

 A Proclamation

    Our system of national parks is entrusted to each generation of 
Americans. By practicing good management and being faithful stewards of 
the land, our generation can show that we are worthy of that trust. 
During National Park Week, we renew our commitment to caring for these 
treasured natural resources.
    God designed our lands to be beautiful, but we must ensure God's 
beauty is maintained and conserved. Our citizens depend on our dedicated 
National Park Service employees and their volunteer partners to fulfill 
this important mission. In 2001 and 2002, volunteers contributed 
millions of hours of service to our parks by clearing trails, repairing 
facilities, leading education programs, and assisting visitors. This 
year's National Park Week theme, ``Partners in Stewardship,'' encourages 
all Americans to join these volunteer partners in helping to look after 
our nearly 400 national park areas.
    The Federal Government is investing more in its national parks now 
than at any time in its history. To help restore our national parks, my 
Administration proposed $4.9 billion in funding over 5 years on needed 
maintenance and repairs. We have undertaken hundreds of vital park 
maintenance projects and are planning and executing hundreds more. We 
are also using a new system of inventory and assessment to identify 
facilities needing improvements and to measure those improvements as 
they are implemented.
    Our citizens own America's parks, historic sites, battlefields, 
recreation areas, monuments, and shores, and we want these lands to be 
accessible and enjoyable for them to visit. We must respect our natural, 
cultural, and recreational heritage and conserve our parks for future 
generations. Park maintenance is critical to achieving each of these 
goals. By modernizing trail systems, we make it possible for people to 
fully appreciate these remarkable places. By maintaining buildings, 
roads, and campsites, we ensure our parks remain sources of pride for 
our citizens, our communities, and our Nation.
    Now, Therefore, I, George W. Bush, President of the United States of 
America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and 
laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim April 18 through April 25, 
2004, as National Park Week. I call upon the people of the United States 
to join me in recognizing the importance of our national parks and to 
learn more about these areas of beauty, their cultural and historical 
significance, and the many ways citizens can volunteer to conserve these 
precious resources.
    In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this sixteenth day 
of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand four, and of the 
Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twenty-
eighth.
                                                George W. Bush

 [Filed with the Office of the Federal Register, 9:43 a.m., April 20, 
2004]

Note: This proclamation was published in the Federal Register on April 
21. This item was not received in time for publication in the 
appropriate issue.

Proclamation 7773--National Volunteer Week, 2004

 April 16, 2004

 By the President of the United States

 of America

 A Proclamation

    The strength of America lies in the hearts and souls of our 
citizens. Across our country, citizens are donating their time and 
talents to improving lives and strengthening communities. During 
National Volunteer Week, we recognize and celebrate those who serve a 
cause greater than self.
    This year's theme, ``Volunteers Inspire by Example,'' highlights the 
role of volunteers in encouraging others to serve. Last year, more than 
63 million Americans gave their time to helping in their communities, an 
increase of 4 million from the prior year. Through the dedicated efforts 
of America's volunteers, we are building a culture of service, 
responsibility, and compassion, particularly among our young people.
    Volunteers can make a difference in many ways--by mentoring a child, 
caring for the ailing and elderly, building a playground, or caring for 
the environment. I created the USA Freedom Corps to help Americans find 
opportunities to volunteer. As I travel around our country, I am honored 
to meet citizens of all ages who volunteer through programs such as the 
Citizen Corps, AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and the Peace Corps, as well as 
many other organizations. Their acts of kindness have a profound effect 
on people's lives and on the future of our country. To recognize those 
who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer service, my 
Council on Service and Civic Participation presents individuals, 
families, and groups with the President's Volunteer Service Award. This 
award is a tribute to those whose outstanding efforts are helping make 
our country a better place.
    America's volunteers set a fine example for our Nation, and I 
encourage all Americans to look for a challenge in their communities and 
step forward to lend a hand.
    Now, Therefore, I, George W. Bush, President of the United States of 
America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and 
laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim April 18 through April 24, 
2004, as National Volunteer Week. I call on all Americans to recognize 
and celebrate the important work that volunteers do every day across our 
country. I also encourage those who have not yet answered the call to 
explore ways to get involved.
    In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this sixteenth day 
of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand four, and of the 
Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twenty-
eighth.
                                                George W. Bush

 [Filed with the Office of the Federal Register, 9:44 a.m., April 20, 
2004]

Note: This proclamation was released by the Office of the Press 
Secretary on April 17, and it was published in the Federal Register on 
April 21.
