The National Park Service welcomes and encourages citizens to get involved with the planning efforts of all of our parks. There are a variety of ways to do this, such as signing up to receive email updates, commenting on draft proposals, and attending public meetings. More details about ways to get involved are shown below. If this page is ever in need of updating, please email us at email@example.com. While we make our best effort to keep information updated, we can occasionally fall behind. We appreciate your understanding.
