Happy 98th anniversary, National Park Service!
The National Park Service cares for the American legacy. The Service was created on August 25, 1916 to manage those areas assigned to the U.S. Department of the Interior.
Specifically, under the Organic Act of 1916, the National Park Service preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the national park system for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.
The National Park Service cooperates with partners to extend the benefits of natural and cultural resource conservation and outdoor recreation throughout this country and the world.
The 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service will occur on August 25, 2016.
