The National Park Service plays varying roles in the administration of parks, rivers, affiliated and national heritage areas, and National Historic and Natural Landmarks. Together these represent a natural and cultural legacy spread across a unique American landscape. In addition, we provide support to communities and projects beyond park boundaries that touch virtually every region in the state.
