I support and donate to NPCA because our parks are National Treasures and deserve all the support they can get from we, the people. In a country where the government is constantly decreasing funding for our parks, it is critical that we continue to donate to keep the parks open and thriving for all to enjoy and for future generations. Our parks and places of amazing wonder, beautiful scenery, and places of amazing tranquility and peace, places where one can become lost in natures beauty and wonder and leave the everyday stress behind. They are, to this park visitor and supporter, critical to our nation. They are havens for wildlife and for us. Some of my fondest memories are of my wife and I hiking the many trails of the parks over many years, especially Shenandoah National Park. I think we have hiked every trail there at Least three times! Any donation to these parks is money well spent and vitally needed.
