Stop Congress from opening the National Park System to Hunting! Contact Your Senators Today!
Although the U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation in the spring that would open much of our National Park System--including historic sites--to hunting and recreational shooting, NPCA worked hard to have similar provisions successfully pulled from Senate legislation. For now, national parks are protected, but we expect this bill to be introduced again. NPCA will continue to work closely with the new Congress to ensure that park wildlife and visitors are protected.
