NPCA is one of my favorite charities. Working to protect our nation's assets is vital and important work for our country's future.
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.
We attended a reception this evening and were very impressed with the staff and the story. Helping preserve our National Parks is a top priority for us and our family.
This is a wonderful site & magazine which brings the National Parks to our lives & homes. The information is educational, regardless of age. It has also provided me with selections on which park I'll be visiting next.
Happy to support an organization dedicated to preservation and conservation of the natural treasures of our country.
I am a firm believer in the importance in maintaining our national treasures,our national parks. I have visited many of them and think it is very important to keep them as free from commercialization as possible so we can hand these truly gems down to future generations for them to use and treasure also.
