The National Park Service Rachel Bryant

The National Park Service was created by an act signed by President Woodrow Wilson on August 25, 1916.

"The National Park Service preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. The Park Service cooperates with partners to extend the benefits of natural and cultural resource conservation and outdoor recreation throughout this country and the world."

LEadership director:Michael T. Reynolds

In 2015 The National Park Service earned $2.8 billion in entry fees. Annual visitor spending money in communities within 60 miles of NPS sites supports more than 295,000 mostly local jobs and contributes about $32 billion to the U.S. economy

National Parks could be facing danger as Trump is wanting to expand oil pipe lines that could eventually reach parks. Even if these lines do not reach national parks they will have detrimental affects to the land in America potentially preventing the creation of new parks.
