Mission:
To protect and enhance America's National Park System for current and future generations.
Results:
The National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) works on the ground, in and around our national parks, conducting research, and working hand-in-hand with park staff, community leaders, park advocates, and state and federal legislators to ensure that our national parks and monuments are welcoming and well funded, well managed and well protected for generations today and tomorrow.

NPCA can be found mobilizing citizens and joining with communities, businesses, landowners, and activists; promoting legislation that strengthens protections for the national parks, advocating for the funding our national parks and monuments need, establishing or enforcing legal safeguards through the courts; and doing everything we can to protect our national parks for years to come.

NPCA was established in 1919 to be an independent voice for our National Park System. One of our founders, Stephen Mather, was also the first director of the National Park Service, which was established in 1916. Mather and others saw a clear need for an independent voice outside of the federal government to protect the nation’s parklands.

For more than 90 years, the nonpartisan, independent, membership organization has been the leading voice of the American people in protecting and enhancing the park system’s superlative examples of America’s natural, cultural, and historic heritage. NPCA and its more than 875,000 members and supporters are committed to preserving the most diverse park system in the world for us now and for those who will come after.

I feel there is nothing more important than preserving the exquisite locations, and sites for us now, and the generations to come. We truly enjoy each and every National Park we go to. We have just been to Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico. We spent three glorious days there, and it is magnificent. ... more »
