Getting involved with the National Park Service can be as simple as picking up a single piece of trash during your stay at a park, or as involved as pursuing a career with the federal government. Friends groups, associations, volunteers and everyday park visitors all have the potential to contribute in some way to the protection of our national treasures.
Chartered by Congress in 1967, the National Park Foundation is the official national charitable organization for America's National Parks. The National Park Foundation stewards a tradition of private support for the parks begun by the American people more than a century ago. Your support for the National Park Foundation ensures that the evolving history and rich heritage of our Nation remains vital and relevant.
