Use Your Voice, Stop Cuts to National Park Budgets

Sorry, this petition has been closed.

We are proud to announce that nearly 110,000 Americans have signed this petition calling on Congress to stop cutting critical funding for national parks!

This is by far the most successful petition drive NPCA has ever had – in nearly 100 years of operations – and it's time for Congress to take notice of how many people have joined this effort.

  • H.R. 2954
    H.R. 2954 is a package of bills damaging to public lands. Specifically, NPCA opposes provisions to remove protections at Cape Hatteras National Seashore (Title V) and Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks (Title VII). The Cape Hatteras provision would overturn a multi-year public process that achieved balance between sea turtle and shorebird protection and beach driving. The National Park Service should be allowed to continue their balanced and successful management of Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The Yellowstone and Grand Teton provision revokes the current, protective National Park Service rules and could lead to unregulated non-motorized boating on roughly 7,500 miles of rivers and streams in Yellowstone and Grand Teton. The bill attempts to elevate the wishes of one user group over others who visit and appreciate the parks, and seeks to direct an outcome without regard to sound scientific analysis and cost.
  • H R 1459
    H.R. 1459, the Ensuring Public Involvement in the Creation of National Monuments Act, would dismantle a conservation tool that has been of paramount importance to the protection of our national parksthe Antiquities Act. H.R. 1459 would require that all monument designations under 5,000 acres be approved by Congress within three years and restricts monument designations to one monument per state in a four-year term. H.R. 1459 is a solution in search of a problem, and diminishes the authority to protect our national heritage that has been available to every president since Teddy Roosevelt.
