As America's population grows, and demographics change, there has been a steady decline in attendance at our nation's parks and a growing disconnect between children and the natural environment. But if National Park Trust has its way, everyone will have an American park experience. For more than a quarter century, NPT has assisted in acquiring privately held land within and adjacent to parks, forests, and wildlife refuges, and in developing, through more than 200 initiatives, public and private partnerships designed to safeguard critical parklands. Even more, NPT wants everyone to develop a passion for our valuable natural resources. Its Youth to Parks National Scholarship program provides American park experiences to children in need, and Where's Buddy Bison Been? encourages kids, and their families, to take NPT's (stuffed) mascot to the nation's parks and share their adventures and photos with others. The goal is to cultivate the next generation of conservation stewards -- and maybe even environmental professionals. Please join your resources with theirs.
