Andy Magee, a local artist and business owner, is devoting the year 2019 to his 365-day journey to all 418 National Park Service units.

On the first day of 2019, St. Louis resident Andy Magee embarked on an unusual adventure with a goal to visit all 418 National Park Service units around the U.S. within the course of a single year. He’s now five months into that journey – and back in St. Louis this week for a pit stop.

On Monday’s St. Louis on the Air, he joined St. Louis Public Radio’s Jonathan Ahl to give an update on his travels, which began during the federal government shutdown.

Magee is local artist and owner of Cioci’s Picture Mart in Kirkwood, Missouri. He has a website and a Facebook page where he’s documenting his 365-day trip.
