The Friends of Big Bend National Park is making an impact at Big Bend National Park, creating new programs and learning experiences for visitors! #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque

The sight of a full moon reflecting off fresh-fallen snow is captivating. In which national park did you last catch a glimpse of a breath-taking moon? We’d love to see your photos!

It can be difficult to remember on long, frosty winter days, but spring will soon be upon us! And once again, we’ll be able to enjoy the burst of colors that wildflowers paint across the National Park System. 

In the summer, these beautiful Sego Lilies can be seen popping up around Glacier National Park. To learn more about this national park, located in Montana, visit:  http://prks.org/16urKC0. #WildflowerWednesday

Joshua Tree is overrun with rock climbing hipsters, RVs, people walking tiny dogs, and kids shouting.   I paid for, and then left in the middle of the night, a camping site in JT.

Chartered by Congress, the National Park Foundation is the official nonprofit of the National Park Service
We worked with Ken at Professional Gifting on an order of CamelBak water bottles for our organization. We were very pleased with Ken’s responsiveness and customer service throughout the experience. The end result was an elegant and high-quality product. We’d recommend Ken and the team at Professional Gifting!
