National Parks Trust

The National Park Trust is the nation’s only organization dedicated to the completion, and the full appreciation, of the American system of National and State Parks through the identification of key land acquisition needs and opportunities.  Moreover, we’re not content with merely building out the system of parks; our vision is based on the belief that there is a necessity to get people to visit parks, and a particular necessity to get young people to have an American Park Experience. 

Since 1983, NPT has worked on over 200 projects and will continue to be at the very heart of our nation's effort to preserve, protect and enhance the nation's system of parks at the local, state and national level.  NPT is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.  All donations are tax deductible.

Our vision is that everyone will have an American Park Experience.  This can only happen if we build awareness and appreciation of our system of national and state parks, and dedicate ourselves to introducing successive generations to this uniquely American heritage.

Our mission is to champion the acquisition and protection of America’s critical parklands through education, partnerships, and community-building.  By fulfilling our mission, we will realize our vision.
