The Salute to the Parks Awards Gala offers one of the largest and most influential gatherings involving the conservation and environmental communities. This annual event celebrates America's national parks, calls attention to their needs, and honors individuals and organizations that advocate for the preservation of our national parks and inspire others to become involved in ways large and small.

Thank you to everyone who supported and participated in the 2014 Salute to the Parks Gala held April 9th at the Newseum in Washington, DC. The featured speaker of the evening, Milton Chen, Ph.D., the latest Robin W. Winks Award recipient, stressed the importance of exposing youth to the national parks and how place-based education can, and needs to, play a critical role in this effort. The audience was also treated to a special live performance by Doreen Taylor who debuted her new song, “Colors of the USA”, which is now available for download with a portion of the proceeds benefiting NPCA.

Save the Date!!
Next year’s event will be held March 25, 2015 in Washington, DC.
