US National Park System Advisory Board revived after languishing under Trump
WASHINGTON — Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland appointed 15 new members to the National Park System Advisory Board today. First authorized in 1935, the Board advises the Secretary and the Director of the National Park Service (NPS) on matters relating to the Service's work.
“National parks are some of the most visible and important forums for visitors to explore the outdoors and learn the complicated yet vital story of America.” said Secretary Haaland. “These new National Park System Advisory Board members represent experienced practitioners in cultural and natural resources management, as well as experts in relevant academic fields including environmental law, geography, and history. I look forward to their insight as we work to make our public lands accessible and inviting to all.”
