Current Advocacy Campaigns from NPCA

Ask Congress to Provide Hurricane Relief for National Parks and Park Communities
National parks were hit hard during Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Tell Congress to include our national parks in any federal disaster relief funding package, so they can reopen sooner, support local economies and be more resilient in future storms.
Congress: Support the National Park Service Legacy Act
Raising entrance fees is not the solution to addressing the $11.3 billion repair backlog, but passing the bipartisan National Park Service Legacy Act is. Urge Congress to pass this bill that provides dedicated funding to fix our parks!
Do Not Weaken Rules for Drilling in Parks!
Tell Secretary Zinke that he must keep his promise to protect our parks -- including their air, water and wildlife -- by not rescinding, suspending or revising the National Park Service rules for oil and gas operations.
EPA: Protect National Parks -- Don't Repeal the Clean Power Plan!
The EPA wants to repeal the Clean Power Plan, which was designed to lessen impacts of climate change and curb harmful pollution from coal-fired power plants. Tell EPA Administrator Pruitt that repealing this plan will hurt human health and national parks.
Help NPCA Protect Theodore Roosevelt National Park
Meridian Energy Group is currently working on getting the necessary permits to build an oil refinery just 3 miles from Theodore Roosevelt National Park! Tell the company's CEO that an oil refinery has no place next to a national park.
Protect the Grand Canyon area from mining!
Tell the Forest Service to withdraw its report calling a Grand Canyon mining ban a "burden"
Stand Up for Our National Monuments!
Urge your members of Congress to stand up to the Trump administration's plan to reduce our national monuments and public lands.
Tell Congress to Preserve and Protect the Antiquities Act!
Urge Congress to support the Antiquities Act, safeguarding America's special places, and oppose any amendments or bills to undermine this important law and the future preservation of and access to our national heritage.
Tell Congress: Re-open National Parks and Properly Fund Them!
The federal government has shut down. Tell Congress to do its job -- fund the government and re-open our parks with the staff they need to meet their mission.
Mining: Not Welcome on Yellowstone's Doorstep!
Join NPCA in standing up to protect our nation's first national park by asking the U.S. Department of Interior and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to protect Yellowstone from two adjacent gold mining proposals.
Protect Our Great Lakes National Parks and Water Quality with Robust Funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative!
Tell Congress to ensure that the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative is fully funded at $300 million annually to protect the Great Lakes and national parks along their shores.
Support the Land and Water Conservation Fund!
Ask your members of Congress to co-sponsor legislation that fully funds and permanently reauthorizes the Land and Water Conservation Fund, a program that has protected our parks from incompatible development for over 50 years.
Tell Congress: Reject POTUS Budget for Parks
Ask your members of Congress to reject the president's proposed budget for fiscal year 2018 and instead help parks recover from years of underfunding.
Tell EPA: Enforce the Clean Water Act and Protect Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore
Last April, U.S. Steel spilled a highly-toxic chemical into a waterway next to Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. But the EPA has done nothing in response. Tell the EPA to enforce the Clean Water Act to protect Indiana Dunes and its visitors.
Tell Secretary Zinke: Monument Review Needs Transparency
Urge Secretary Zinke to consider the breadth of support received during the public comment period on the review of national monuments and maintain equal protections for all sites.
