The National Park Service cares for special places saved by the American people so that all may experience our heritage.

This webpage provides links to public domain video of some of those sites, including national parks, monuments, battlefields, historic sites and related areas.

Video previews are presented in Flash player format. Please take advantage of the preview feature to view clips before you download them. The files are quite large and may take some time to download.

Video is listed by subject matter. Please use the drop down "FIND A VIDEO " lists below to find links to specific subjects.

The National Park Service arrowhead is a legally protected symbol, and is not intended for public use without permission from the National Park Service. Video clips of the arrowhead are not available for download from this site.

Additional multimedia materials and photo resources may also be available from individual park webpages. If you wish to browse parks alphabetically, by state or by special interests, please see our "FIND A PARK" page at www.nps.gov/parks.html.
