The Climate Friendly Parks Program (CFP) is a collaboration of the National Park Service and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that helps parks fulfill their role as stewards of the nation's most important natural and cultural resources. The program provides national parks with comprehensive support and with tools and resources to address climate change both within park boundaries and in surrounding communities.
