NPS Centennial Challenge Projects

A group of young hikers proceed up a steep mountain trail surrounded by green slopes on a sunny day.
Hikers enjoy the Sahale Arm Trail in North Cascades National Park; repair and revegetation of the trail will be completed in partnership with Washington's National Park Fund.


In 2015 and 2016, the National Park Service selected more than 150 projects to leverage $25 million in congressional appropriations with more than $45 million matching funds from partner organizations across the country.

These projects will improve visitor services, support outreach to new audiences, and strengthen partnerships to reinvigorate national parks and forge connections to new communities.

A list of the 2016 projects is here.
