The national park sites of the Midwest are steeped in history, wrapped in the fabric of American culture, and spectacular in their natural beauty. NPCA’s Midwest regional office strives to build support for the more than 50 diverse national park sites throughout the region.

The Midwest is home to great urban national parks like Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in St. Louis; Cuyahoga Valley National Park between Cleveland and Akron; Mississippi National River and Recreation Area in St. Paul; and Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore outside of Chicago. Being in close proximity to large cities provides not only unique challenges for these parks but great opportunity and a wealth of community support.

The natural wonders of the Midwest are as varied as the landscape. The great stone and clay formations of the Badlands, the shifting sand dunes of Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore, and the waving Tallgrass Prairie attract visitors to their splendor.
