This is a great organization working hard to ensure the future generations can enjoy our magnificent parks and history. When I receive my monthly magazine, I make a list of all the great parks I can't wait to visit and enjoy.

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.
The Rangers have a deep love in their hearts for their Parks.
I am proud to be a continuing member/donor of the National Park Conservation Association.
I hope you'll feel inspired too. It is ONE place that we can know with certainty, that the money is used effectively and efficiently. I love that!

I commend the NPCA on creating such a wonderful magazine full of informative articles and beautiful pictures of our great parks!

There have been many articles that I've read that continue to enlighten me on some of the dangers the parks and animals face with our every changing need to tap the earth of resources or build, build, build.

I grew up vising the parks and they are the fond memories I think of often. I've been able to share the parks again with my own children and am a staunch supporter of funding the parks in their full glory.

I do miss the "rangers" and the guided talks they provided and wish they would return.

Thanks again NPCA for remaining vigilant. I'm proud to be a member!

NPCA goes above and beyond to spread the word about the dangers of our national parks being harmed. Funding this association will help protect the ecosystems and ancient structures within the parks as well as contribute to pay for expenses within the association. Every experience I've had at places like Yellowstone, Glacier, Valley Forge, Mesa Verde, etc have been nothing but spectacular. I want that experience to last for generations to come.

We have visited dozens of our amazing National Parks and we want them to continue to amaze future generations. To say nothing about visiting them again. NPCA helps to keep issues facing the parks at the forefront so we don't neglect them. Budgets have been cut and this has been very difficult to keep the parks maintained. Pollution encroaches into the parks. There are so many issues that need to be addressed and this organization is there to push for solutions. Thanks.

I am a retired National Park Ranger who is honored to have served my country in some of the West's iconic and stunningly beautiful places. I am also a past member of NPCA who has renewed her membership. This organization is in the very forefront of protecting our national treasures. I believe so strongly in the mission of NPCA that I am designating my assets to the organization in my will.

I have visited numerous US parks since 1999. Even though I am a wheelchair user, I have found the park system to be accessible. I have had the privilege to view first hand the impressive national treasures available to everyone. With budget cuts occurring year after year, it is imperative that we have support from NPCA to keep our parks open and in good condition so that all many continue to enjoy them for years to come.

I just returned from Utah, Arizona and Colorado where I travelled with friends to visit the National Parks in those states. I was so in awe of the beauty and magnificence of all of the parks we were fortunate enough to visit. I am grateful that these "treasures" will be be there for my grandchildren and their grandchildren. How lucky we are to live in this wonderful country where organizations like National Parks Conservation Association are preserving these phenomenally beautiful parks. I was so impressed with the lodging, museums, ranger programs led by such well-informed rangers with great communication skills, and how well all of the parks were managed. Thank you to the NPCA for your part in preserving and protecting our National Parks.
