The United States is home to 61 areas that are designated National Parks. These parks offer up some of the most magnificent landscapes and wildlife. The parks are a photographers paradise! In addition to the parks, there are also 100’s of National Monuments, Recreation Areas, Preserves, and Historic Sites. The parks attract some 330,000,000 people a year! With the increased popularity of the parks, they are starting to show some wear and tear. There are many ways you can help support the parks. Here are a few of our favorite ways.
Donate or Visit-
You can make a donation in the name of a loved one, set up an estate plan, or become a monthly supporter.
When you visit the parks the entrance fees go towards keeping the parks up and running.
The parks offer numerous volunteer opportunities, including an Artist in Residence program.
Buy Some Swag –
In honor of National Parks Week we asked our community to share some of the National Park Images, and here are some of our favorites.
“National parks are the best idea we ever had. Absolutely American, absolutely democratic, they reflect us at our best rather than our worst.” – Wallace Stegner
Thanks to all that submitted images!
