A Century of Impact is a treasure trove of stunning photographs and evocative text celebrating the continued nurturing by NPCA of “America’s Greatest Idea – her national parks.”
“It’s difficult to imagine what America would be like without the Grand Canyon or the Great Smoky Mountains or the Statue of Liberty. National parks offer us more than battlefields and hiking paths, beachfronts and mountaintops: We find a sense of identity and inspiration in these treasured places. They speak to who we are as Americans, and all who are part of National Parks Conservation Association’s mission feel the great sense of responsibility that is bound in the work to protect and preserve every one of these sites for future generations.”
-Theresa Pierno, President and Chief Executive Officer, NPCA
The NPCA and their 1.3 million members and supporters are the voice of America’s national parks, working to protect and preserve our nation’s most iconic and inspirational places for present and future generations. Together they celebrate the parks — and work tirelessly to defend them — whether on the ground, in the courtroom or on Capitol Hill.
From the NPCA national headquarters in Washington, D.C., and 27 locations nationwide, people call on their program and policy experts, committed volunteers, staff lobbyists, community organizers and communications specialists to inform and inspire the public and to influence decision makers to ensure that our national parks are well protected.
They have earned many hard-won victories together — but our national parks face new threats every day.
