Parks are dynamic ecosystems that help safeguard a diversity of plant and animal life. But these ecosystems are not immune to the impacts of climate change. Just as we need parks, parks need us. Learn about programs and activities, such as prescribed burns, which help parks become more resilient to threats like severe wildfire. Discover how you can get involved in efforts to protect and steward your parks, including actions you can take to combat climate change at home and at work.
