The NPS Mission
Mission statements are essential for an organization. Mission statements describe the fundamental reason(s) an organization exists and what it seeks to accomplish. A mission statement helps the employees of an organization to understand the goal of their work and how they fit. In this regard, it is important to know the mission of their organization, office, work group, and so on.
It’s just as important for NPS employees to know our mission, what we strive to do.
The NPS mission states:
“The National Park Service preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park Service System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. The Park Services cooperates with partners to extend the benefits of natural and cultural resources conservation and outdoor recreation throughout this country and the world.”
