USA ~ Sequoia National Park - 2016 National Park Service ~

...A great special  postcard issued for "The National Park Service" that turns 100 on August 25...In celebration of this anniversary America invites the world to discover the meaning of national parks to their lives and inspires people to both experience and become devoted to these special places... Thanks a lot Kimberley!!

The National Park Service (NPS) was created by Congress following President Woodrow Wilson’s signing of the Organic Act in 1916, which was designed to preserve and protect parks for the “enjoyment of future generations.”

The NPS is an agency of the United States federal government that manages all U.S. national parks, many American national monuments, and other conservation and historical properties with various title designations.

This Service is charged with a dual role of preserving the ecological and historical integrity of the places entrusted to its management while also making them available and accessible for public use and enjoyment.
