Tell Congress to Keep Our Parks Funded!
With the passing of the Continuing Resolution that funded the federal government for the remainder of Fiscal Year (FY) 2011, the National Park Service sustained a $132 million cut! The attention now has shifted to the FY 2012 budget.
Since national parks are already underfunded, sustained painful cuts in the FY 2011 budget, and are at risk of additional cuts in 2012, we need your help to defend the parks.
This alert is no longer active, but please consider taking action on other issues.
