Through the years I have visited many of our National Parks. They are truly wonders to see! We need to conserve these now to make sure our children and grandchildren have the same opportunity we have had.
I am seeing much erosion and destruction in the parks now that we need to make others aware of so additional protections can be implemented. The NPCA is working hard to protect these precious lands and they need all the help they can get!
I am a true lover of our National Parks! So beautiful and amazing!
I so appreciate the up-to-date notifications regarding NPS issues on the website! I can quickly notify government representatives of my position as well as the NPCA position regarding potential threats to our wonderful parks!
NPCA is one of my favorite charities. Working to protect our nation's assets is vital and important work for our country's future.
The NPCA does so much to increase awareness of the growing issues that threaten our precious national parks. Not only do they make membership worthwhile from member perks such as the annual calendar, but they also send periodic emails to me whenever a natural disaster, political decision (pending or otherwise) is/will affect a national park/historic site, and provide it's members with a means to have our voices heard, or for us to lend a helping hand. The NPCA does a great job of cultivating a community of like-minded people who care about the preservation of our national parks/historic sites for generations to come, and I am proud to donate to and call myself a member of this organization!!
Every time I visit a National Park I feel refueled! Growing up I took them, as many other natural wonders, for granted. I assumed people love nature as much as I do or as E.O. Wilson said "Nature holds the key to our aesthetic, intellectual, cognitive and even spiritual satisfaction."
As an adult I realized that is not necessarily the case, it takes a lot of effort to advocate for it. Knowing that NPCA is there to protect these treasures now and for generations to come is a great inspiration for me.
I am now living in California where John Muir once said "God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods. But he cannot save them from fools." Education, awareness and advocacy is what we need and joining NPCA I feel part of this effort.
Our national parks are a legacy that can't be lost! The NPCA is working to continue to keep our parks safe for generations to come. They are continually sharing information to keep their readers informed of what is going on in this country.
