America's Best Idea

How We Help

Inspired by the Ken Burns’ film “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea” which originally premiered on PBS in September 2009, the America’s Best Idea program connects diverse, underserved and under-engaged populations throughout the United States with their national parks in innovative and meaningful ways through a variety of environmental, adventure, historical, and other activities.
