NPT preserves parks today and creates park stewards for tomorrow. In the past year, we protected 120-acres in Glacier National Park, 30-acres in Zion National Park and 42-acres in Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. We’ve also transported 10,000 students (preK-8th grade, of which 80% qualify for free or reduced-priced lunches) to parks from 50 schools across the country, providing them with hands-on experiences to learn about parks, wildlife and plants, all while encouraging healthy outdoor recreation and stewardship.
