Today, I finished the second series of 18 collectible travel cards. The series includes 5 new destinations, 3 U.S. National Parks, 3 new countries, and more. If your kids love to travel then make sure you add them to your Duckwyn Travel Passport account so they can receive these free travel cards in the mail each month.
We've added our new U.S. National Park printable guides and certificates to Etsy. These new guides are available for Aches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Zion National Park. They are $2 each for the guide and certificate or purchase them all together for $5. If you already have a Duckwyn Travel Passport account, we'll make these downloads available for free within the app over the next couple of days.
Each guide includes 10 must-see family friendly stops, a map referencing their locations, and general information about the park. Your kids will enjoy completing these quests and they'll love having a certificate to add to their wall when they get home. Each package includes full color and black and white PDF's for easy printing.
Park Guides and Certificates
The newest edition to the Duckwyn Travel Card collection is Acadia National Park. Located in Maine, the park was the first national park east of the Mississippi River and it's still the only one in the northeastern United States. It was established by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916 as Sieur de Monts National Monument. It was renamed to Acadia in 1929.
To collect this card, and many more, you will need to get your own Duckwyn Travel Passport. Simply setup your family's account and add address and we'll send you cards in the mail each month.

Iguazú Falls is located along the border of Argentina and Brazil. This 2,700 m (8,858 ft) wide waterfall makes up the largest waterfall system in the world. Its drop is taller than Niagara Falls and its width is wider than Victoria Falls. You can access the falls from a walkway on the Brazilian side or by train on the Argentine side.
Victoria Falls is located on the Zambezi River in Africa. At 1708 m wide and 108 m tall, it is the worlds largest sheet of falling water. The area is protected by two national parks, one in Zimbabwe and the other in neighboring Zambia. David LIvingstone, a Scottish missionary, identified the falls in 1855 and named it after Queen Victoria.
Banff National Park was established in 1885 as Rocky Mountains Park of Canada. In 1930, the Canadian National Parks Act gave the park its current name. The park contains several large glaciers and icefields including the Columbia Icefield, the largest uninterrupted glacial mass in the Rockies.
The park is home to two important historical sites, the Jamestown Settlement and the Yorktown Battlefield. In 1607, the Jamestown Colony became the first succesful English settlement in North America. Just 174 years later, the British would surrendor here to the American Continental Army acknowleding the United States independence.
