Among his many accomplishments, George Washington was a surveyor and civil engineer who used his talents to develop a new nation. In addition to commemorating his birthday, this week is also Engineers Week. National Park Service parks and programs preserve some of the nation’s most innovative and iconic engineering marvels, while engineers have and continue to play an essential role in the design, construction, maintenance, safety, and public health of our national parks.

Meet the engineers of the National Park Service and learn more about their efforts to preserve park resources and maintain access for millions of visitors each year.
