Dear Friend of the National Parks,
I'm pleased to invite you to an upcoming Trustees for the Parks virtual talk featuring an exciting opportunity to tell an American story. On Wednesday, March 24, learn why NPCA supports the potential creation of a new national park in Colorado at Amache, a former WWII Japanese American incarceration site. In this Park Talk, you'll hear from Amache descendants and experts about the importance of honoring and preserving this place for future generations and learn how you can take action.
I hope you will join us! Please find the details below.
