Western National Parks Association (WNPA) helps make the national park experience possible for everyone. As a nonprofit education partner of the National Park Service (NPS), WNPA supports parks across the West, developing products, services and programs that enhance the visitor experience, understanding and appreciation of national parks. 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. Throughout our 80 plus-year history as a partner of the National Park Service, we've provided over $120 million in support to national parks across the West. We operate stores in all of our partner parks, develop park-focused publications and products and design programs to get visitors to the parks. We also fund historical, social and environmental research that creates a better understanding of parks.
