Northeast Region's 2017 Year in Review
Success in a New Century
"There is nothing so American as our national parks...The fundamental idea behind the parks...is that the country belongs to the people, that it is in process of making for the enrichment of the lives of all of us." — President Franklin D. Roosevelt
In 2017, the National Park Service (NPS) celebrated its 101st year. It was a time to get back to basics. Many parks and programs brought unique and undiscovered stories into light, which inspired new audiences to experience parks next door and across the country. This effort helped visitors to have a deeper encounter with natural and historic stories and resources.

In 2017, the National Park Service celebrated its 101st birthday. We’re one year older than President Kennedy. This year, the Parks 101 campaign helped visitors find new parks and rediscover more familiar places. That’s what you’ll see in our 2017 annual report: new audiences, new places, new experiences, new ways to have fun. You’ll also see the dedication of our region’s 3,000 employees, plus the hard work of partners, volunteers and supporters like you.
National parks belong to us all. So let’s enjoy them, and find your park!
