Why do national parks need WNPA Park Protectors?

More than 70 national park partners in 12 Western states depend on Western National Parks Association (WNPA). Revenue from our 75 park stores and contributions from Park Protectors and other donors supports our park partners by:

  • Improving parks with exhibits, educational signage, and benches.
  • Helping park rangers create programs like talks, recreational activities, and special events.
  • Supporting smaller parks by increasing awareness and sharing their untold stories to help attract more visitors.
  • Funding high-level research which informs park managers of the best ways to preserve and protect natural and archaeological resources.
  • Providing access to parks for people who otherwise would not be able to visit.
