Current Park Preservation Projects
- NPT has partnered with the Trust for Public Land to acquire the second largest remaining inholding in Glacier and the last remaining one along the federally designated Wild and Scenic Middle Fork of the Flathead River, where 30,000 rafters float each year.
- In honor of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, NPT is working to acquire a critical inholding at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield in Georgia. NPT is also developing a program where public school students and the community will have a unique opportunity to work closely with park officials to ensure that the property is protected in perpetuity, and to participate in the interpretation of the historical value of the preserved lands for future generations.
- The Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area (SMMNRA) is the world's largest urban national park. NPT has embarked on an effort with the Trust for Public Land (TPL) to garner legislative support for Land and Water Conservation Funds (LWCF) to acquire large parcels within this national park, which includes over 500 miles of recreation trails and 47 miles of beaches – all within access to Los Angeles' diverse and often park-poor population.
- NPT holds the conservation easement on this 2000 acre ranch, which abuts the Ouachita National Forest and the Poteau Mountain Wilderness Area. The forest is home to 79 proposed, endangered, threatened, and sensitive species. The easement also provides habitat protection for the bald eagle. The conservation easement benefits both the Wilderness Area and the National Forest by providing a buffer zone to ensure the continued ecological viability of these federal assets.
