Gifts for your loved ones, our national parks, and even yourself!

This year has reminded us of many things; most notably, the value of family, good health, and our hobbies, all of which are integral to our time in national parks. We often spend time with our family exploring national parks. It’s where we relax, learn, and find wonder. And we spend hours recreating in national parks.

In 2020, we’ve been reminded of our love of national parks in many ways – through virtual visits, by our own online community, and by recreating responsibly when we could safely enter them. At NPF, we are proud to support some of the world's most scenic, historic, and cultural places. This holiday season give a gift that will help the National Park Foundation protect them for generations to come.

Shopping tip: If you forgo or reuse a shopping bag in a Free People store this holiday season (and all year!), $0.10 will be donated to NPF.

For Staying In

On December 1, 50% of the retail price of smallmedium, and large Eco Water Bottles will be donated to NPF in celebration of Giving Tuesday.

Season’s greetings from the National Park Foundation!


Hi, I would like to order a year park pass for my daughter and her husband for Christmas. If I order it sent to me, will it be in my name? I see it's non transferrable, so I want to make sure it's in her name. Thank you for your time, Nancy Sajban
