Your Dollars at Work
Successful stewardship of our natural and cultural heritage and maintaining a safe, accessible, enjoyable, and educational place to visit requires substantial funding. Although taxes help offset the costs of operating parks like North Cascades National Park Complex, they do not cover all of them. As expenses to maintain and staff our parks rise each year, government funding is unable to keep up.
In an attempt to address this shortfall, Congress passed the Federal Lands Recreational Enhancement Act, which helps spread some of the operating costs among the people who use the parks.
