Help Your National Parks
At TheMountCo, we are all about the outdoors
We want to do everything we can to try and preserve our beautiful National Parks - Some of the last pieces of land set aside for observing and interacting with nature, not developing. We believe people want to help, but many times they just don't know where to start. That's were we come in. We created this page to make it easier for people to help the National Parks they love so much. Below are links to a few of the National Parks and Foundations that you can help us support. Our National Parks need all the help we can give. Thank you from all of us at TheMountCo.
National Parks Service: Since 1919, the National Parks Conservation Association has been the leading voice of the American people in the fight to safeguard the scenic beauty, wildlife, and historic and cultural treasures of the largest and most diverse park system in the world. Help us assure the future of our beloved national parks.
Yellowstone National Parks: Yellowstone is a national treasure that needs the ideas, energy, and contributions from many different people to successfully enhance and preserve it for the future. With the launch of the nonprofit Yellowstone Forever, we are building a new model of partnership with the National Park Service, one that will engage more visitors and future stewards than ever before. The opportunities that Yellowstone Forever provides—to experience, connect, and contribute—are the first steps in a lifelong journey for people who want to preserve the park for generations to come.
National Park Foundation: Officially charted by Congress to raise money for the National Park System, this group operates on a national level to find partners and philanthropists interested in investing in the parks. But it also helps fund initiatives in individual parks, such as a climate-change seminar for high school students at North Cascades National Park and weekend camping trip to Everglades National Park by an Hispanic family that had never visited the park.
Glacier National Park Fund: This organization funds a wide range of work and projects at Glacier National Park. It has obtained and installed bear-proof storage lockers in front-country campgrounds, worked to make trails ADA accessible, funded education programs for school children, and sought donations to help fund wildlife research in the park.
