About Western National Parks Association

What Do We Do?

As a nonprofit partner of the National Park Service, Western National Parks Association supports 67 parks across the West, developing products, services, and programs that enrich the visitor experience.

Why Does It Matter?

Since 1938, WNPA has worked to connect new generations to parks in meaningful ways, all with one simple goal: create advocates who want to preserve and protect these special places for everyone, for all time.

Our Partner Parks

Throughout our 75-year history, we’ve provided millions of dollars in support to national parks.  Today, we operate more than 80 Park Stores in our partner parks.  Proceeds from sales are the number one way we provide support.

WNPA works with its partner parks to develop educational publications and products, design programs to increase park visitation, and fund historical, social, and environmental research.  Our flagship store and event center in Tucson, Arizona, has become an urban gateway to the national park experience; we’re creating other urban experiences to expose new audiences to national parks.

Everything we do ensures that the experience people have in parks is meaningful and that visitors can extend their experience by discovering relevant products in the Park Stores.
