National parks have long provided economic, recreational, and cultural benefits to Arizonans–approximately $837 million each year. Unfortunately, our national parks face an $11.9 billion backlog of infrastructure and maintenance funding, including $580 million for Arizona national parks. The shortage in funding for Arizona parks includes almost $100 million in maintenance for WNPA partner parks. This funding helps maintain and improve roads and trails, and thereby negatively affects national park visitors.

Join Diana Rhodes as she explains how you can help celebrate the National Park Service Centennial by convincing Congress to give the NPS the tools they need to continue telling America’s stories throughout its 410 NPS sites.
