Stewardship Activity- Minute Man National Historical Park

What is Stewardship?

Stewardship simply means taking action to protect something you care about.

Why should people care about Minute Man National Historical Park?

How can you take care of or protect your National Parks, including Minute Man?
There are many ways you can be a good steward of the National parks. Here are a few ideas:
  1. Follow Leave No Trace Principals when you visit. Read about LNT:

  2. Pick up litter left by others; on your own or with a volunteer group. Make sure you stay safe and use proper equipment. Contact the park’s volunteer program to learn more:

  3. Know and respect the rules at each park. Tell a ranger is you see someone breaking the rules or doing something you think is damaging the park.

  4. Teach your friends and family about National Parks and how to act when they visit. Maybe you do this on social media, as a school project, or just by talking about what you’ve learned.

  5. Talk to a ranger. The more you learn about a place, the more you can share what you know with others.

  6. Follow your favorite parks on Social Media (or ask your parents to).

  7. Hold a fundraiser and make a donation to the park or an organization that supports National Parks.

  8. Write to your lawmakers to tell them why you care about National Parks and ask them to help protect them.

  9. Visit! Have Fun! Parks are only here because people love them.
