(ARA) – In just seven years, the National Park Service will celebrate its 100th anniversary, and while the celebrations are starting out strong, the national parks are beginning to show their age. Threats of funding shortfalls, pollution, climate change, and encroaching development are competing with the parks’ natural and historic wonders.

Many of these threats plagued the parks 80 years ago, and are revisited in Ken Burns’ historical documentary series, “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea,” which recently aired on PBS.

There are many quick and easy ways you can help restore the parks for your children and grandchildren:

* Explore the parks and share your passion for them with others to build support.

* Sign up for news and action alerts and contact your congressional representatives and the president about important park issues through the National Parks Conservation Association at

* Through the “Do Your Part! for Climate Friendly Parks” Web site, you can calculate your carbon footprint, and set a goal for reduction. For example, buying local food items, riding your bike to work or reducing the amount of air conditioning or heat you use can help you meet your goal.
