Over 60 years ago, the National Park Service created its Office of International Affairs which has worked to facilitate cooperation between the U.S. National Park Service and counterpart agencies around the globe. Today our office continues the invaluable work of collaborating, sharing knowledge, and engaging with the international community on a variety of topics connected with the work of the National Park Service. 

Our web site provides information on the mission and work of the Office of International Affairs and is a source of information for the public and National Park Service staff who are interested in our international activities. We invite you to learn more about the unique and interesting programs we are involved with throughout the world.
