We celebrate the champions of conservation in the USA. Pay our respect to past and present leaders and ask what we must do to engage conservation champions of the future. Mainstreaming is livestreaming, so we host hangouts and share live Periscope videos from the parks. This presentation features artwork, screnshots, events and publications about parks and wildlife in the USA. Your comments are welcome and so are embeds, likes, clips and shares.

  6. Who will gainsay that the parks contain the highest potentialities of national pride, national contentment, and national health? A visit inspires love of country; begets contentment; engenders pride of possession; contains the antidote for national restlessness ... He is a better citizen with a keener appreciation of the privilege of living here who has toured the national parks. - Stephen Mather Photo @ National Park Service

  19. Visitor centers and other locations where visitors gain information in parks are viewed as old fashioned. They are not friendly to the ways in which more tech-savvy visitors gain information once in a park, or to increasing amounts of information that is available to visitors before they come to a park. - National Parks Conservation Association
