National Parks

“There is nothing so American as our National Parks…The fundamental idea behind the parks…is that the country belongs to the people” – Franklin Roosevelt

Where Legacy Roams.  Are there any words that better describe the United States national parks and public lands? Widely recognized as America's Best Idea, parks containing man and beast were created to protect, preserve, and make accessible our nation's most wild and historic places. In short, the parks are the fabric of our great country and who we are as people. They are our birthright as Americans and for many, a frontier of discovery, exploration, and joy.

That said, too often our heritage of history and landscapes is taken for granted. Despite their growing popularity, politics threaten the well-being of our overall park system namely in form of funding. Wild Tribute's 4 the Parks initiative aims to help close the evergreen gap in funding while being a platform that educates and appeals to all ages and ethnicities. Without the voice of all generations and backgrounds, our beloved 400+ United States national parks listed below are in peril of falling on the wrong side of legacy. So what are you waiting for? Check out the list of national parks in the US and spread the word, spread the love, and join our wild tribute 4 the Parks!
