Dear Friend of the National Parks,
Fewer park rangers. Roads and trails unmaintained. Closed national parks! These are some of the consequences if Congress fails to protect national parks from dangerous cuts in January under the so-called sequester. Speak up now to keep your national parks staffed and open!
The National Park Service costs just 1/14th of one percent of the federal budget and did not cause the deficit. Restricting access to national parks certainly won’t solve our budget problems.
National parks protect our natural and cultural heritage, provide affordable vacation destinations for American families, and are an inspiring draw for international visitors, supporting more than $30 billion in spending and more than a quarter of a million jobs each year. National parks are good for America and good for business.
Congress must find a solution that protects America’s best idea.
Take Action: Send your comments to Congress and ask them to keep national parks open and rangers on duty.
With your help, we hope to ensure parks stay open and continue to protect our heritage—from Yellowstone to Acadia! Thank you.
