The Coalition to Protect America’s National Parks recently sent Congress a letter signed by 262 former and current employees of the National Park Service. These Park Service professionals came together to request funding for the National Park Service’s $11.3 billion maintenance backlog. Click “Read More” to see our letter.
As the 115th Congress begins session, the Coalition to Protect America’s National Parks has requested that both the House and Senate fund the National Park Service’s $11.9B Maintenance Backlog. The Coalition strongly believes that failure to provide this important funding will continue to seriously jeopardize our nation’s most important natural and cultural resources, and diminish the experience visitors have at our national park units. We ask CPANP members to also contact their Senators and Representatives, and request they support funding for our National Parks.
