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. 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.

NPSNext invites conversation and collaboration. To effectively solve problems and leverage opportunities you need all staff to contribute. Depending on the size of your park/unit you may need to reach out beyond the planning workshop to gather ideas and actions.

In this phase of the process, you’ll compile and edit the shared values and key actions that rose to the surface during the workshops.
