Cooperating associations are official nonprofit education partners of the NPS. Working side-by-side with NPS staff, nearly 70 associations curate and manage park stores across the National Park System. Through NPS-approved products, programs, and events, they help people better understand and connect with the meanings and themes of a park. Effective interpretive programs ignite curiosity. Cooperating associations help satisfy that curiosity with engaging educational products that allow visitors to take a tangible piece of the experience home with them. An Association is defined as a private nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation established under State law, with which the NPS has a signed standard Cooperating Association Agreement. Director's Order and Resource Manual 32 provide guidance for those activities performed under a signed standard Agreement. As part of their standard agreement with the NPS, Associations donate proceeds from their sales to support the park’s interpretation, education, and research activities.
