Western North Dakota is experiencing a boom in oil and natural gas production, and the landscape around Theodore Roosevelt National Park is seeing a massive influx of rigs, well pads, trucks, pipelines, and roads. NPCA's new interactive maps and stories explore the effects fracking is having on the park.

NPCA and the Creative Action Network have set out to inspire a new generation of artists and nature lovers with the See America Project, a crowdsourced art campaign influenced by New Deal-era national park posters. Our new website showcases artists around the country celebrating our national parks and other treasured sites.
Young Donors Give Up Gifts to Help Parks

Remember when you were young and asked all of your friends not to bring gifts to your birthday party? Odds are you don’t, because to most grade-schoolers, forgoing presents is an almost unthinkable sacrifice. But not to Owen and Zach Brunner. These brothers began a tradition of asking friends to give money to their favorite national parks in lieu of birthday gifts. We ask what motivates these inspiring young donors.
