Panel Description

Reimagining America’s National Parks

America’s national parks have never been more popular. They provide inspiring educational, cultural, and recreational experiences for more than 300 million visitors annually. With this number expected to reach half a billion by 2050, we must ask ourselves what will we need to meet the visitor demands of these future parks? What is the role of technology in making parks more accessible? How do we support and implement sustainable planning and infrastructure? The National Park Foundation and its partners are investing in solutions to reimagine the ways people will experience parks in the future.
