National Park Service becomes commercialized? Sign the petition!

“Cancel your plan to allow corporate sponsorships, logos, and branding in our national parks. Our national parks should be adequately funded by Congress, not dependent on corporate commercialization.”

#nationalpark  +National Parks Conservation Association +National Parks 
Tell the National Park Service to scrap its plan to start allowing corporations to put their logos and brands on parts of our national parks. Congress needs to give our parks the funding they need, not force them to commercialize our precious public lands.
