Centennial Initiatives

NPS Centennial Challenge
The National Park Service Centennial Challenge is an opportunity to match (at a minimum of 1:1) federal dollars with that of partners to accomplish projects and programs at national parks to prepare them for a second century of service.
Urban Agenda
The Urban Agenda is a National Park Service effort to strategically organize its many urban parks and programs toward building relevancy for all Americans, to connect with their lives where they live, rather than only where some may go to vacation.
NPS Call to Action

A Call to Action rallied all employees and partners to advance a shared vision toward 2016. It identified specific goals and measurable actions to chart a new direction for the National Park Service as it entered its second century.

Every Kid in a Park

Every Kid in a Park provides fourth graders nationwide free access to experience federal lands and waters in order to connect kids to their cultural and natural heritage.

NPS Centennial Act

The National Park Service Centennial Act, passed and signed in December 2016, provides new tools to help the NPS advance its mission in its next century.
