National Parks Conservation Association Responds to Interior Announcement Regarding Opening National Parks

Statement by Theresa Pierno, Acting President for the National Parks Conservation Association

“The National Parks Conservation Association welcomes the Department of the Interior’s efforts to lessen the hardship of the government shutdown on local national park communities. However, this makeshift approach is not a permanent solution. National parks are treasured by Americans nationwide; they not only protect our national heritage, but they are important to local economies, and Congress and the Administration have a responsibility to keep them open and adequately funded.”
