The Natural Resource Stewardship & Science (NRSS) partnership program creates new relationships and sustains ongoing partnerships that increase the level of care given to preserve our natural heritage in national parks.
The NRSS relies on partners to help carry out the important natural resource work that healthy parks depend on. We could not accomplish many of our most-needed programs and projects without the support of our many friends.
"The National Park Service recognizes that its most effective results come from engaging and collaborating with others, expanding awareness and understanding, discovering mutual goals, attracting resources and support, and building relationships, trust, and commitment to participation in collective efforts that extend the reach of all." —Making Friends Handbook, National Park Service
