The delicate and beautiful ecosystems of the national parks, featured prominently in the public's attention because of the agency's centennial in 2016, are increasingly endangered. Climate change also affects park visitors and surrounding communities. Apostle Islands National Lakeshore is featured in this Medill News Service story, along with Yellowstone, Indiana Dunes, and Acadia.
