A part of the Mission Statement of the National Park Service is to preserve "for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations."
When you bring your children to see the waterfalls at Hornbecks Creek, to paddle down the Delaware River, or to participate in a ranger-led evening program at Dingmans Campground, you wear an honorary badge and flat hat for helping the Rangers of the National Park Service to achieve this mission.
