The mission of Valley Forge National Historical Park is to educate the American people about one of the most defining events in our nation's history. The park does this by committing to preserve the natural and cultural resources that honor the encampment of the Continental Army at Valley Forge in 1777-78. This commitment includes educating staff, partners, and visitors about the benefits of environmentally friendly practices, programs, products, and behaviors. Our goal is to become a model for how we manage our cultural and natural resources in an urban setting. We will continue to work to reduce emissions as part of the Green Parks Plan goals we have committed to in our Climate Friendly Parks Action Plan (PDF document.)
