As the official charitable partner of the National Park Service, the National Park Foundation's www.nationalparks.org mobile site gives visitors the opportunity to give back - while on the go. With integrated "support" functionality, now park visitors can give back to the places they enjoy so much - while they are there. Visitors can also discover the many ways the National Park Foundation has helped any one of the national parks they are visiting.
Built on the principle of delivering relevant, practical and compelling content generated by and for park visitors - the new mobile resource gives park visitors instant access to learn the latest from the National Park Service and other park visitors, along with the ability to immediately share their own park experience including stories, photos and videos.
