Protecting America's Great Waters

The National Parks Conservation Association recognizes that the health of our national parks is directly linked to the health of the waters that surround and flow through them. As part of its landscape conservation strategic priority, NPCA actively works in the Chesapeake Bay, Colorado River, Everglades, Galveston Bay, Great Lakes, and New York/New Jersey Harbor and Hudson Estuary to conserve and restore these waterways for the benefit of current and future national parks.

To further restoration as a national priority, NPCA co-chairs the America’s Great Waters Coalition, an alliance of organizations working to protect, preserve, and restore our Great Waters. The Coalition envisions a day when Americans embrace their Great Waters and ensure they are healthy, valued, and productive resources for future generations.
