To Celebrate National Parks, We Want Your Instagram Photos

Share your best photos with the hashtag #WilderNextGen.

The national parks have seen record attendance this year. While on assignment for National Geographic, photographer Corey Arnold found that—contrary to the notion of a younger generation holed up inside with technology—millennials are engaging with the national parks in their own innovative and meaningful ways. National Geographic asks younger audiences to show and tell on social media why millennials are both a wilderness generation and a wilder next generation. (See the October magazine cover story, "Unplugging the Selfie Generation".)

Do you have interesting photos of yourself at a national park or enjoying nature? Using the tag #WilderNextGen, share it with us on Instagram.

Throughout the campaign, Your Shot will feature entries on the Your Shot Instagram page, and photographer Corey Arnold will help curate.
