A Legacy Threatened

NPCA's photo book shows the damage to parks caused by the 2017 hurricanes.

Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria damaged or destroyed historic structures, housing, visitor centers, ferry boats, levees, boardwalks, docks, trails, roads, dams, bridges and lodging at many national parks.

Storms harmed natural habitat, threatening water quality, affecting wildlife and making communities more vulnerable to future storm surges. We must rebuild the places that were devastated by these storms.

We urge support for including robust National Park Service funding in the next disaster relief bill. The funds must be sufficient to meet parks’ needs and rebuild infrastructure to be more resistant to future storms.
