Eastern National (EN) is a non-profit organization that provides quality educational products and services to America's national parks and other public trusts. EN functions as: a part of the interpretive arm of the National Park Service, a business that acquires or produces and sells materials to enhance the enjoyment of park visitors, and a philanthropic organization that disperses its net income to the Service for its diverse programs. EN operates sales outlets at several park visitor centers at Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and also conducts sales by phone, mail, and website (www.eParks.com). All purchases benefit the national lakeshore. The "Around the Archipelago" newspaper is just one of many free publications and information handouts that are funded annually through the generosity of Eastern National.
