    National Park Funding & Centennial Challenge

    in Travel

    According to the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA), the spending bill for the National Park Service (NPS) approved by the House Appropriations' Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Subcommittee on June 10, 2015, would increase funds for the agency, but still not meet our national parks’ growing maintenance and operation needs. In addition, the bill includes several policy riders that could undermine critical protections for parks, including for clean water important to the health of park visitors, resources and wildlife.

    John Garder, NPCA's Director of Budget and Appropriations, talks with Big Blend Radio hosts Nancy J. Reid & Lisa D. Smith about the funding issues facing our parks, especially with the NPS Centennial occuring on August 25, 2016. Together with one million members and supporters, National Parks Conservation Association speaks for America’s national parks. Since its founding in 1919, NPCA has been an independent, nonpartisan voice working to strengthen and protect our nation’s natural, historical, and cultural heritage. Your voice is needed to help protect, connect, and restore these incredible places for present and future generations.

    This interview originally aired on June 10, 2015 on Big Blend Radio's Happy Hour variety show, that broadcasted live from the historic Coronado Motor Hotel in Yuma, Arizona.
