The National Parks Service celebrates its centennial this year!
Watch for Don Corrigan’s story this month on the National Park Service (NPS) and their 100th Anniversary, and why more and more people are planning summer trips to the parks to celebrate and to take advantage of some deals, both locally and nationally.
The NPS has many opportunities to learn and experience the country’s National Parks during this centennial year. One way to learn is to see what issues the NPS is currently focused on, like the nine parks the NPS says are in peril.
Information released by the NPS shows what specific elements could put nine National Parks in peril. For instance, the Mojave National Preserve is at odds with a new proposed industrial-scale solar installation, and the Colonial National Historical Park is at odds over a super-sized electric transmission line that threatens the historic landscape.
