National Parks in Peril

Our Congressional ‘Sequester’ at Work in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, MI

According to National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis, if additional NPS budget cuts follow those resulting from the current Congressional “Sequester,” it will be necessary to actually close a number of National Park sites, which would be particular lamentable on the eve of the 100th Anniversary Celebration of the NPS coming up in 2016.  Please, please contact your Senators and Representatives who have foisted the existing situation upon us to demand that such an ill-considered measure not be adopted.
