* Establishment of a commemorative trail in upstate New York that connects local and state sites to the Women's Rights National Historical Park.
* Creation of the Ice Age Floods National Geologic Trail in the Northwest--the first national geologic trail in the National Park System.
* Protection of the cultural, ecological and scenic integrity of the Little River Canyon National Preserve in Alabama and Fort Davis National Historic Site in Texas from adjacent development by adjusting their boundaries.
NPCA and supporters like you have worked together for years to protect our national parks. Working together we can, and do, make positive changes for our parks.
