Increasingly partnerships are becoming an effective means for the National Park Service to fulfill parts of our mission and foster a shared sense of stewardship that is so crucial for the future. We face two pressing realities.

  • Given current budget realities, we are coming up short on enough funds and staff to keep up with accomplishing our core mission work. This gap necessitates re-thinking how we can best get the job done. Our role needs to shift from trying to do everything ourselves to one of empowering others through partnerships to help us do more while always ensuring that the results meet the high standards we hold for our parks and programs.
  • The second reality is that our partners develop an appreciation for and a sense of commitment to our mission, values, resources and people. Partnerships are a sound investment for both the near and long term. We need to invest wisely. Good partnering is both a skill and an art.
