Key Initiatives

The campaign will advance NPCA’s advocacy, public education, and awareness, and applied science and management work on behalf of the parks. Our efforts will:

  • Protect and enhance our national and cultural treasures
  • Help the National Park Service thrive
  • Connect people and parks

These three areas broadly cover NPCA’s strategic initiatives, which were developed by the NPCA community and adopted by the Board of Trustees.

Key actions include, but are not limited to:

  • Reducing the impact of rising temperatures, water scarcity, disease and invasive species and other threats to park lands, plants and animals.
  • Ensuring offshore oil and gas revenues deposited into the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) are available for their intended purpose: buying open space from willing sellers and developing recreational places for all citizens.
  • Encouraging the Administration to include private-public funding partnerships as a strategy to augment overall support.
  • Helping the National Park Service recruit and retain a more diverse and skilled work force, resulting in a more effective agency.
  • Launching a cross-country campaign to create national momentum for the Centennial anniversary of the Park Service in 2016.
  • Seeking Congressional approval for new parks or park boundary adjustments.
  • Promoting “landscape conservation cooperatives” that unite federal agencies, state and local governments, nonprofits, and private landowners in designing regional conservation plans.
