The National Park Foundation Works to Preserve Natural Landscapes for Future Generations

Cool Story - The National Park Foundation Works to Preserve Natural Landscapes for Future Generations

 

National parks are natural areas that are set aside for various reasons. These landscapes have so much to offer people. You can enjoy recreational activities, or just take in a park’s natural beauty. It’s important that these parks be given protection. It’s the job of the National Park Foundation to keep national parks safe for future generations. This is done through their support of the National Park Service. The National Park Foundation is the National Park Service’s main ally, financing the parks and programs and giving aid to those who supported the parks. 

 

Before the National Park Foundation was established, there had already been national parks and landscapes that were given protection. In 1864, one of the first acts of land preservation occurred when President Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant, to set aside Yosemite Valley. However, there wasn’t a way for private citizens to fund these parks. On December 18, 1967, Congress solved this problem by founding the National Park Foundation. 

 

The National Park Foundation’s mission is to protect the lands preserved by their organization. They have many projects and strategies to encourage the safeguarding of landscapes, the wild, and areas of history and culture. The National Park Foundation wants to motivate everyone to see the beauty of these parks, and help protect them. There are eight fundamentals that given what the  National Park Foundation does: stewardship, strategy, impact, common ground, partnership, innovation, diversity, and future orientation. All of these principles combine to create an organization that will make sure our parks will be safe. 

 

One important part of the National Park Foundation’s work is to preserve the riches of the parks. This includes the park's landscapes, natural environments, and wild animals. Natural parks should be protected, to keep their treasures safe . However, national parks constantly suffer threats that negatively impact their wildlife and habitats. The National Park Foundation protects parks in all 50 states, from Alaska to Florida. With the help of their partners, the National Park Foundation conducts important research on different landscapes, to help keep them and the wildlife they house safe. Thanks to their efforts(and the efforts of their partners), more than 135,000 acres of new park land have been preserved.  

 

Keeping our national parks clean is an important part in their preservation. The National Park Foundation and their partners are working to make these parks stronger, so they’ll be around longer. This is done through the implementation of transforming the foundation of these parks to make them better for the environment. Changes include waste reduction, updating campsites, and water conservation. Making the parks more sustainable helps the National Park Foundation with its goal of park preservation. 

 

National parks are a greater source of education than one may realize. There’s tons children can learn by exploring their local park. The National Park Foundation and their partners support programs that help youth learn through the history and nature of national parks. All over the country, national parks provide children with a great number of topics they can learn. The programs provided by the National Park Foundation have shown to increase and supplement the material presented in classrooms. Students taught in these programs gain important skills, such as conceptualizing, comprehension, composure, and inventiveness.
