    NPS is under the US Dep’t of the Interior. When the NPS was founded 100 years ago, the Sec’ty of the Interior was Franklin K. Lane, originally from DeSable, Prince Edward Island colony of the British Empire. I wonder what he’d think of the NPS now?

    1. Kollin Bliss

      What do you think he’d think?

      Want to hear from others…. My view is of 0 import.

      Big business keeps trying to encroach. We need to stand strong against commercialization of our national parks. Remember the words in an old song, “pave paradise – put up a parking lot”.

      +NationalParkService our national parks show the true beauty of America. There is nothing on earth like them. I’m grateful that we have preserved them. We also can’t forget our wonderful state parks too!

  4. Debra Sudtelgte

    I love our parks. We are so lucky to have access to open lands protected for ALL.

      Many people ask why the US became so successful economically. Natural wealth is rarely mentioned as an answer, compared to science/industrialization. Still natural wealth is one of the most important factors to the success of the US as a nation. Thankfully, the US managed to save some beauty through this initiative.

    As a park ranger from the National Park of American Samoa, the only US national park south of the equator, I was proud to see our tiny park featured in this video. Happy NPS Centennial to all and please visit YOUR national park here in the South Pacific! Check us out on FB:

    Loved this. Wish they had shown more older people out enjoying the parks, not only the younger generation. Still, I loved it.

  16. Andrew Barnson

    My wife and I just returned from the Redwood National and State parks. Beautiful does not even begin to do the trip, memory, and adventure justice. Even back at work, half a country away, we probably haven’t fully returned from our trip yet. Thank you NPS, for preserving all the beautiful gems of the U.S. that you do.

  17. Mitchell Hill

    I’m an intern at Fort Sumter and I’m sending my birthday wishes to you

    Is there Audio-Description for this video?

  21. Chauncy Gilmore

    I don’t feel as I own the land when you have created so many arbitrary restrictions and fees and hoops of fire to jump through to get a backcountry permit .

  22. Chauncy Gilmore

    Don’t forget the NPS has sold your land to the U.N and its world heritage site program that uses revenue generated from these areas to pay off foreign debt .

  23. nael weiss

  24. Sravan Kumar N

    Wish the NPS would buy the Adirondack state park in New York and turn it into a National Park. It’s truly one of the most amazing places in the Northeast.
