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 a million 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.

The National Parks Conservation Association is the best at using our donation for the intended purpose, for what means most to its members; me.

What better cause than to help preserve something that can never be recreated - we only have the fixed amount of land that was given to us. The NPCA helps ensure that these lands we call our National Parks will be with us to enjoy for generations to come. Thank you.

Although it has quite awhile since I have visited a National Park, I believe the conservation is very important for the future generations. Crater Lake National Park is the closest national park to me and it is very precious to me. We need to protect all the national parks .

In April, we visited the Flight 93 National Memorial site in PA, part of which is still being constructed. It, along with so many other parks we have visited is impressive and so very important to preserving our land, flora and fauna, animals and our people. The Rangers love to share their extensive knowledge of the sites. They are passionate about what they do. Please give to NPCA and support legislation to get more funding for our parks. They are us!

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!
