The NPCA is working so hard to protect our parks. We need them more than ever. Our parks are in danger and we must keep them safe
I'm a frequent visitor to our national parks and am personally familiar with the important contributions of this important association.
We love to visit National Parks and are especially proud that our nearby Pinnacles National Monument is now a full-fledged national park. Our teacher son took his classes there for a wonderful four day experience with a naturalist recently.
When we can't visit a park ourselves, we enjoy reading about them in your magazine. It makes us more aware of the many treasures the United States is privileged to own and protect.
I grew up in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State and have been hiking and birding ever since. Retired now, I am enjoying traveling with Road Scholar where I especially enjoy the opportunities this group affords for exploring and birding in our national parks, wildlife refuges, and forests/grasslands/seashores. I am so appreciative of the National Parks Conservation Association for making it easy for me to support these lands owned by all Americans. It is quintessentially American that when the federal government falls short in its support, we citizens step it up to support those values which define our country at its best.
My experience is the awe I have every time I go to a National Park. The NPCA is dedicated to ensuring these national treasures are maintained for today and the future. My family has had enjoyed many great National Park experiences - most recently at North Cascades NP.
I love the National Parks Conservation Association because they are committed to saving our National Parks. I have been very worried about this current national administration destroying our National Parks, our natural national treasures. By supporting the National Parks Conservation Association I believe I am helping to stop the destructive actions and work towards preserving these National treasures for all to use and enjoy
My husband regularly goes hiking in some of our local National Parks The parks are kept very nice for visitors and we would hate to think what might happen if these wonderful oasis were not kept up. We also appreciate the rangers that are available in the large parks. they help educate us and keep us safe.
When I went with my daughter to the south I stopped in several national parks along the way and was always impressed with the knowledge of the rangers and the information along the way. These weren't the big parks that one hears about but the little ones. it's because of that trip that I give to the NPCA
I appreciate the calendar, mailings and all their efforts to preserve the beauty and access to our national parks.
Outdoor activity renews the spirit and the body. The National Park system in our country is a national treasure. Open areas, nature in its untouched beauty, animals seen in their natural habitat can save lives. I believe this so strongly that I am taking a group of students from Florida to Yosemite National Park in California. To be able to hike in the mountains, embrace a Sequoia Tree, dip our feet in a cold mountain stream, be challenged by Half Dome, and marvel at untouched meadows is heaven on earth. NPCA conserves and renews these areas annually. That's why I support them, and enjoy the magazine they put out each month.
We love our National Parks they never disappoint! I think they do a great job keeping them up for the public to enjoy!
NPCA is a great advocate for our National Parks. The association keeps me well informed through email newsletters of top issues they are working on. The magazine has exposed me to so many of our national resources I wasn't aware of and we've incorporated visits to these locations into our travels.
This is a non-profit that gets things done! With their advocacy, real changes have been made to preserve our natural resources and open more land for preservation and the enjoyment of all. I was especially pleased to see my former Army duty station, Fort Monroe, VA, added to the national parks list. Getting this done was an incredibly quick turn-around , compared to how the government often operates, and I credit it in part to the passionate advocacy of NPCA.
Experienced an amazing hiking/camping trip to the Grand Tetons
Love the experiential learning, beautiful hiking trails and camping facilities.
Love the staff and the learning facilities. We love our Forest Rangers - please, please, please keep them employed
As a fan of the National Parks, and especially Great Smoky Mountains National Park where we
vacation every year, I am all too aware of the difference NPCA makes in providing much-needed support for the parks. And this support is crucial right now, with this extremely ant-environmental administration wanting to take away all park funding. NPCA just might make the difference between having parks and having no parks.
National Parks are one of America's great assets. This Association is working to make sure the parks remain for us and future generations to enjoy.
Their beautiful magazine keeps me informed about or national parks and their continued stewardship to protect them for generations to come.
We were traveling through New Mexico and happen to see a sign about volcanos in New Mexico. We had never heard of such a thing.We thought we'd give it a look. When we got up to the ranger station we found that because we had a membership we got in free! This was an awesome place. We got to drive up to the top of the volcano and the park ranges were so nice and informative. It was beautiful! The rangers told us you could see for 150 miles from the top of the volcano. There was a very nice gift shop that they were refurbishing. The temporary gift shop was nice too. They had nature trails around the top of the volcano and also by the ranger station. We will be sure to stop back there again on our travels through New Mexico
