Conservation and Outdoor Recreation

NPS Conservation and Outdoor Recreation programs embrace the principles of civic engagement, collaboration, and cooperative conservation. Through partnerships, we extend and expand the contributions of the National Park Service throughout the nation to connect all Americans to their parks, trails, rivers, and other special places.

Every year, the National Park Service partners with the American Hiking Society to support National Trails Day® and appreciate America’s trails and the hard-working individuals who build and maintain them. Find an event near you.
