Western National Parks Association is a nonprofit cooperating association of the National Park Service. Headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, the association was founded in 1938 as the Southwest Monuments Association to support the interpretive activities of the National Park Service.

Today, Western National Parks Association operates bookstores at sixty-five National Park Service sites throughout the western United States, plus an online store with more than 600 educational products. In addition to developing publications, the association supports park research and helps fund programs that make park visits more meaningful. One of the association's founding goals was to create and publish park-related information unavailable elsewhere.
