As you can probably tell from my blog posts, I care a lot about national parks and this environment. Luckily, many organizations are out there doing great work to protect them right now. Here are few to check out below.
The National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) started back 100 years ago in 1919. Today, they have over 1.3 million members and supporters. Their mission is simple – to protect and enhance our national parks. I have been a member with this organization for at least the last 15 years and encourage you to check it out!

As the official nonprofit partner of the National Park Service, the National Park Foundation (NPF) generates private support and builds strategic partnerships to protect and enhance America’s national parks for present and future generations. This organization protects some great resources for the national parks and you can support them as well. Click here to see NPF’s website.
The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is another great organization with their mission to conserve nature and reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth. You’ve got to love their logo too with that adorable panda! Check out their animal adoptions and other cool ways to help. 84% of their spending is directed to conservation activities! My son has even used his own money to adopt an animal from here to help them out! Click here to see WWF’s website.
These are just a few organizations here. I support several other amazing organizations all working to protect our natural environments. Google and find an organization whose mission connects with you. These nonprofit organizations work hard with limited resources to make a difference!
Support the national parks and our environment by helping these organizations out, contacting your elected officials, riding a bicycle or walking more, turning off the lights, and many other small ways to help.
