A Statement from National Park Foundation President and CEO Will Shafroth on the Confirmation of Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland

The National Park Foundation congratulates Representative Deb Haaland on her confirmation as the 54th Secretary of the Department of Interior.

As demonstrated by her leadership as Chair of the House Natural Resources' Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands, she recognizes the value and importance of the 423 national park sites that reflect the beauty, grandeur, and history of our country. We are confident that national parks and public lands will be in good hands under her leadership.

The National Park Foundation looks forward to a great partnership with Secretary Haaland as we work together to protect and preserve our national parks and connect as many people to them as possible.
