DID YOU KNOW...
NPCA and others have stopped two attempts to build a casino outside of Gettysburg.
Outstanding natural beauty, diverse wildlife and ecosystems, and extraordinary history abound in the 70 national parks and many related sites in NPCA’s Mid-Atlantic region. Trace the unfolding American Revolution across the region, from the winter encampment at Valley Forge in Pennsylvania, to Yorktown, Virginia, where the British world turned upside down. Ponder the Civil War’s causes and consequences at Antietam in Maryland, at Gettysburg in Pennsylvania, and at Appomattox Court House in Virginia. Walk in the footsteps of early civil rights leaders at Harpers Ferry in West Virginia. Petition our government, celebrate our diversity, and organize to conquer our challenges on the National Mall in Washington D.C.
Threats to Mid-Atlantic Parks
These extraordinary places are under relentless pressure from threats ranging from inappropriate development, non-native and aggressive plants and animals, air and water pollution sometimes originating hundreds of miles away, critical and chronic funding shortfalls, and the impacts of climate change. With your involvement, NPCA works in the Mid-Atlantic region to ensure that our national parks are fully protected, fully funded, and cherished as local treasures as well as national jewels.
