The National Parks Conservation Association’s (NPCA) objective is to preserve the United States national parks and forests for the benefit of tomorrow’s generations. They were created to avert any threat or legislation that could possibly damage fragile ecosystems and historical locales. However, the National Parks Conservation Association can’t do it alone. They need all of our help.
The most direct way to help the National Parks Conservation Association protect our national parks and monuments is to become a member. Membership is given to anyone who wants to join with a minimum $ 15 donation. All donations go towards the NPCA’s goal of improving our national parks.
Along with the comfort of knowing your money is going towards a great cause, you receive the benefits of free travel guides, maps, newsletters, and invitations to special NPCA guided tours of your favourite national parks and monuments.
If you really want to help the NPCA, but are a bit low in the money department, don’t worry. There are still plenty of things you can do to participate.
You could ask for community support or ask a local business to help with donations. There are several programs offered by the parks for kind hearted individuals on a budget. One such program is the annual Spring Cleaning campaign.
It’s spring and it’s a good time to get rid of any unwanted clutter around the house. Throw a yard sale and donate a percentage of your sales to the NPCA. While you’re at it, print out one of their petitions from their website (www.npca.org) to have anyone who drops by sign to improve the air quality in our national parks and forests.
If you don’t have enough clutter to warrant a sale, you can sign one of the National Parks Conservation Association’s petitions on your own. One such petition is named the Fix Our Parks Pledge.
This purpose of this pledge is to make the government and the general public aware of the impending crisis of underfunding and pollution plaguing our national parks and monuments. By the National Park System’s 100th birthday in 2016, the goal is to have fifty thousand pledgers who’ll reach out and write the President, Congress, and local newspapers asking to support our national parks by funding programs that’ll save these wonderful areas before it’s too late.
If you feel that you can’t come up with a letter eloquent enough to write to the President or your member of Congress, the NPCA provides pre-written letters as well where all you have to do is sign the bottom. Saving our national parks and forests has never been so easy.
The National Parks Conservation Association’s causes aren’t so broad that they ignore local park issues. Whether it is petitioning the increase in daily snowmobile access at Yellowstone National Park, or updating signs and washroom access at the National Mall in Washington D.C., you can find the NPCA involved in upholding the standards of these parks.
To find more information on the National Parks Conservation Association, call 1-800-628-7275 or visit http://www.npca.org. You will discover their many successes and their hopes for the future and find ways that you can be a part of the park’s future success.
If we want to preserve these parks for future generations, we are all going to have to take an active role in keeping these parks alive.
