Conservation Group's Web Site Is A "Best Bet"

Washington, D.C. - The National Parks Conservation Association's Web site, www.eparks.org is designated a USA Today Education "Best Bet" for the week of December 3-8, 2001. In the year since its launch on October 1, 2000, the NPCA Web site has received more than 50 awards.

The NPCA Web site offers visitors the opportunity to explore the National Park System and take action to preserve the parks through virtual visits, an action and information center, wildlife and habitat conservation information, cultural diversity information, and events.

Several wildlife fact sheets—invaluable resources for school reports—as well as sections specializing in cultural diversity, coral reefs, wetlands, and ways kids can make a difference are available at www.eparks.org. The Web site's destination finder helps kids research all of the national parks, and a brand-new action center helps kids communicate with elected leaders on subjects related to national parks.

"The site is an interactive, exciting educational resource," said NPCA Director of Online Communications Marie Jorgensen. "People of all ages can learn about the National Park System, the natural, cultural, and historical treasures and national symbols of our country."

USA Today's Education section is the premiere Web resource for educators; the "Best Bet" designation recognizes annually fewer than 150 Web sites with useful and unique information and resources relevant to students, parents, and teachers.

VisualPoint, Inc. and 48th Ave. Productions of Washington, D.C., designed the site.
