National Park Service archeologists, architects, curators, historians, and other cultural resource professionals work in America’s nearly 400 national parks to preserve, protect, and share the history of this land and its people. This includes:
- 27,000 significant structures in national parks
- 66,000 archeological sites in national parks
- 115 million objects in park museum collections
The National Park Service also develops standards and guidelines for historic rehabilitation projects, offers “how to” advice for hands-on preservationists, and helps find new owners for historic lighthouses.
We can help you preserve what you care about. Find out how.
