National Park Service Centennial
Since 1916, the National Park Service has been entrusted with the care of our national parks. With the help of volunteers and partners, we safeguard these special places and share their stories with more than 275 million visitors every year. Learn ways you can get involved, find sites to explore, and challenge yourself on the NPS Centennial page.
There are many ways you can help care for your national parks, from one-time to reoccurring volunteer opportunities for youth, families, groups and individuals. To learn more about volunteering with the National Park Service and to get started, visit the Volunteer page.
The National Park Service prepares a variety of planning and environmental documents to help guide the management of park service sites, projects, and programs. To find out more about how you can have a voice in the management of your parks please visit the Planning page, and take time to explore the NPS Planning, Environment & Public Comment (PEPC) site.
