National Parks Foundation outraged by shutdown



From the Grand Canyon to Gettysburg, Acadia to the Everglades, the impact of the government shutdown will be felt in every national park across America.

Impact on parks due to government shutdown:

  • All 401 national parks all across the country will be closed affecting as many as 715,000 national park visitors each day the government remains shutdown.
  • More than 21,000 national park staff members will be furloughed meaning critical resource management, including important scientific monitoring to protect endangered species, will not happen.
  • Due to closures, planned field trips will be cancelled denying teachers and students across the country access to our nation’s largest open classrooms.

Already have a national park trip planned?

  • October is peak season for many tourists who travel to see the changing autumn leaves and enjoy all the parks have to offer in the Fall. If you have a trip planned to a national park during the closures, please contact your hotel or lodge directly. All reservation lines should remain open through the shutdown, providing up to date information about reservation status.
