Summary
"A Century of Impact celebrates the first 100 years of the National Parks Conservation Association, tracing its history and vision through stunning photography and tales of victory in a beautifully designed keepsake book. From its founding by the same visionaries who helped to create the National Park Service to present-day battles to protect our public lands, the National Parks Conservation Association has been the independent, non-partisan protector of America's favorite places. A Century of Impact presents this admirable legacy through richly illustrated tales of an impassioned organization in action -- fighting off threats to park lands, water, air and wildlife, and advocating for a park system that tells a more complete American story. Readers will enjoy fascinating and often untold tales of park protection -- such as saving Olympic's old-growth forests from WWII lumber production; restoring the endangered Florida panther in the greater Everglades ecosystem; keeping the nation's largest landfill from the doorstep of Joshua Tree; defeating a proposed casino sited within cannon range of the hallowed ground of Gettysburg -- and an inside look at how persistent advocacy led to the creation of parks from Great Basin and Tallgrass Prairie to Pullman, Stonewall and Birmingham. With A Century of Impact, readers are invited to join NPCA's centennial celebration and discover how this humble organization has helped to shape the National Park System as we know it. More than that, it is a compelling reminder that the future of this nation's most sacred spaces lies in the hands of ordinary citizens, united to ensure that America's best idea endures for generations to come."--provided by publisher
