Mission Statement

To protect and enhance America's National Park System for present and future generations.

Description

Since 1919, the National Parks Conservation Association has been the sole voice of the American people in the fight to safeguard the scenic beauty, wildlife, and historical and cultural treasures of the largest and most diverse park system in the world. Originally created as a watchdog for the National Park Service, today NPCA partners with the federal government and numerous national, regional, and local groups to act: On the ground, mobilizing citizens and joining with communities, businesses, landowners, and activists to protect park resources by battling abuse and neglect, educating the public, promoting local restoration, and fostering better management in parks nationwide. In Congress, promoting parks legislation and lobbying for public funding to meet growing needs. In the courts, establishing legal safeguards that will protect our national parks for years to come. For more than eight decades, NPCA's triumphs have been numerous, but threats to parks grow daily more severe. As the nationâ s only membership organization dedicated solely to protecting the entire park system, NPCA and its hundreds of thousands of supportersâ nature lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, wildlife advocates, community activists, environmentalists, and devotees of American historyâ are committed to preserving our nation's natural, historic, and cultural heritage for the next generation.
