The Second Century of America's Best Idea
Throughout the history of the National Park Service there have been numerous challenges in achieving the pioneering goal of conservation for the public good. Today is no exception, as the National Parks are under unprecedented strain while receiving historically low levels of political and financial support. If the Parks are to continue to thrive they will need the support of the people who love them.
The goal of the Future Parks Foundation is to create engaging new forms of art to cultivate the support the Parks need. New types of media about the National Parks will spark awareness and stewarship for the next generation. FPF will make this happen by bringing world class digital artists into the National Parks. There they will work to bring the experience of the National Parks to anyone with a screen.
