    Mapping our progress

    2013 ANNUAL REPORT

  • For the past three decades, NPT has supported and assisted in acquiring inholdings and in developing public and private partnerships to promote the acquisition and protection of parks, wildlife refuges, historic landmarks, public lands, and waterways.


  • The future of our nation's treasured parks, public lands and other open spaces rests in the hands of our youth. Through NPT's widely respected and rapidly growing kids to parks initiatives and Buddy Bison youth education program, everyone will be provided with the American Park experience they deserve.

When you buy Buddy Bison, you help National Park Trust send an under-served student to a local, state or national park or wildlife area. All proceeds from sales of Buddy Bison and T-shirts benefit our Kids to Parks National Scholarship Fund.
After you get your own Buddy Bison, send your photos of you and Buddy Bison as you explore national, state, and local parks; historic landmarks; wilderness areas; and wildlife refuges to buddy@buddybison.org. Or send them to Buddy's facebook page. We may add you to Buddy's map.

You may be selected to be featured on our website and in our newsletter, Buddy Bison's Buzz along with stories, songs or drawings that you have written with Buddy Bison.

Buddy Bison says, "explore outdoors, the parks are yours!". Become part of this national movement and help us cultivate current and future park stewards!
