Resilience & Sustainability
The National Park Foundation (NPF), together with our partners, is helping make our parks more resilient and sustainable for the benefit of both parks and the people who love them.
National parks belong to all of us, and the National Park Foundation (NPF), together with our partners, is making these national treasures more resilient and sustainable for the benefit of both parks and the people who love them. Through this work, NPF is applying innovation and expertise to make park infrastructure more environmentally friendly and sustainable, while enhancing environmental stewardship.
From reducing waste and conserving water resources to powering parks with renewable energy, these programs support work across the national park system to integrate sustainability practices into all aspects of operations.
The preservation of our parks is central to the National Park Service’s (NPS) mission, and its Green Park Plan, which acts as a road map to build resilient, green infrastructure and educate park visitors on climate change and sustainability. NPF’s Resilience & Sustainability programs reduce environmental impact and protect our parks’ resources for the enjoyment of current and future generations.
