Today, the National Park Service (NPS) celebrates its 100th birthday! This momentous day represents 100 years of service and steadfast protection and preservation of our nation’s most beloved outdoor and recreational spaces, cultural resources, and historical sites.
ASLA is working to advance federal legislation, which includes the National Park Service Centennial Challenge Fund. The Fund would finance NPS signature construction, maintenance and education projects by matching private contributions with federal dollars. Without congressional action, bi-partisan legislation to formally establish the NPS Centennial Challenge Fund may lose momentum.
YOUR VOICE is needed to encourage Congress to authorize and fund the NPS Centennial Challenge Fund. Tweet your congressional representatives to let them know TODAY is NPS’s 100th birthday, and to support any legislation and amendments that fund the NPS Centennial Challenge.
