Mission Statement

We preserve parks today and create park stewards for tomorrow. We acquire the missing pieces of our national parks, the privately owned land located within and adjacent to our national parks’ boundaries. We also bring thousands of kids from under-served communities to our parks; they are our future caretakers of these priceless resources.


In 1983 National Park Trust was founded by a group of committed individuals passionate about protecting our nation’s parks. Today, the Park Trust benefits from a vibrant community who work together to support our mission.

Today thanks to our many partners, board, and staff, we aim to accomplish our mission in two ways:

First, the National Park Trust continues to support the National Park Service when they seek our expertise to purchase the missing pieces of our national parks. The acquisition of these privately owned lands helps preserve the integrity of national parks. In 40 years, the Park Trust has added over 25,000 acres to our nation’s parks in 32 states, DC, and the US Virgin Islands.

Second, the Park Trust works to meet the needs of NPS by cultivating and inspiring the next generation of park stewards. We believe our public parks, lands, and waters should be cared for and enjoyed by all for current and future generations. Our youth and family programs annually engage tens of thousands of students from Kindergarten through college - and thousands of families across the country.

As we look to the future, we remain committed to our vision that everyone will experience the endless possibilities of our public parks, lands, and waters.
