Park Service with the care of their national parks. With the
help of volunteers and park partners, we are proud to safeguard
these nearly 400 places and to share their stories with more than
275 million visitors every year. But our work doesn’t stop there.
We are proud that tribes, local governments, nonprofit
organizations, businesses, and individual citizens ask for our
help in revitalizing their communities, preserving local history,
celebrating local heritage, and creating close to home
opportunities for kids and families to get outside, be active, and
Taking care of the national parks and helping Americans take care
of their communities is a job we love, and we need – and welcome –
your help and support.
National Park Service is a bureau of the
U.S. Department of the Interior and is led by a Director
nominated by the President and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
