Why I Give to NPCA

By Kevin Hadlock
August 2, 2014

Ever since my first visit to a National Park in 1971, I have loved spending time in national parks and NPS sites, whether scenic, historical or otherwise noteworthy. I love the way the parks make me feel connected to something much bigger than myself, make me feel connected to every other American, since we each own a small share of each park site. But I give because I feel as the Native Americans did, that we do not "own" the lands of our national parks; rather, we are simply stewards of the land for future generations. I want to help preserve all the special places in our great country for my children, their children, and all future generations to enjoy and appreciate as much as I have.
