The National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) advocates for the national parks and the National Park Service, they educate decision makers and the public about the importance of preserving the parks, and, among other goals, assess the health of the parks and park management to better inform their advocacy work. The Heritage Tourist supports this activity and approach.
Between now and February 21, the NPCA is seeking photos you may have taken during your visits to your favorite parks. These may be current or from the past with your family. How many national parks have you visited? Did you take photos on your very first visit to a national park? Which park was that, and when? I hope you will share some of your photos. Just follow the instructions at the link.
While you are at the NPCA site, you may wish to sign up for their free e-News email newsletter. I did. If you don't want to receive it, after you get your first e-News you can easily cancel it. I enjoy the photos of the national parks as well as what is going on around the country. I hope you do, as well.
