Western National Parks Association (WNPA), a nonprofit education partner with the National Park Service, supports 71 partners across the western U.S. developing products, services and programs that enrich the visitor experience.
Since 1938, WNPA has worked to connect new generations to parks in meaningful ways. They do this by making educational materials available to the public in their stores. Merchandise includes books, journals, educational games and t-shirts, Jr. Ranger items, bookmarks and posters that help tell the story of each park.

They also work closely with the park's interpretive division to support special events, activities and programs. In addition, they fund scientific research to help advance the management, preservation and interpretation of national parks.

Please inquire about the very informative audio guide that is available to rent for $5 per day at the cavern store. You may listen to this audio tour as you walk through the cavern, stop-by-stop, listening to information about the cave that is interesting and educational. Available in many languages, and adult and children's versions.
