History goes down in history with the signing of the Outdoors Act in America
It was a landmark day for America’s favorite National Parks: President Donald Trump signed the Great American Outdoors Act (HR 1957), a law that will provide a special source of funding to address the problem of delayed maintenance in the National Parks Service (NPS).
After signing, Interior Minister David Bernhardt signed a proclamation proclaiming August 4. As the “Great American Day of Active Recreation,” an annual day of free visits dedicated to this monumental victory of the state lands of our country.
When I joined the small Proclamation signing ceremony at the Ministry of Internal Affairs. I felt that I witnessing a historic moment in our country’s efforts to preserve.
National parks were born as a bold and visionary idea to preserve and protect America’s rapidly shrinking wildlife. And here we are today, more than 100 years later. Fulfilling a worthy mission of national parks so that Americans always know the history and natural beauty of our great country. The funding provided by the American Wildlife Conservation Act will ensure access for future generations and meet the growing needs of parks and vacationers.

US Travel Company is deeply grateful for the efforts of both parties to pass this bill and for the sincere and timely support of the White House. We would like to thank President Trump, Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO), Steve Danes (R-MT) and Joe Manchin (D-WV). As well as representatives of Joe Cunningham (D-SC) and Brian Fitzpatrick (R). -PA), Mickey Cheryll (New Jersey) and Mike Simpson (R-ID) for their leadership on this historic measure in the midst of a challenging legislative calendar.
In a difficult year for the travel and tourism industry, this is undoubtedly a bright spot. Signing this bill will be important to ensure a more prosperous and sustainable future for the beautiful state lands of our country. And it could not have happened at a better time.
The new National Park Trends Tracker from the U.S. Travel Association, Rove Marketing, and Uber Media shows that the number of visits to some national parks is increasing. As Americans look for healthy and responsible ways to travel during the pandemic. The Destination Analysts study conducted on August 3 also showed that among those traveling in 2020, nearly 23% plan to visit the national park.
National parks are not only a popular place for summer
National parks are not only a popular place for summer holidays but are also important for our economy. Visiting national parks contributes to the development of local communities. That relies on visitors’ expenses to fuel their local economy – last year alone. More than 327 million visitors’ expenses brought the economy 41.7 billion dollars and supported 340,500 jobs. The signing of the U.S. Environmental Protection Act and the establishment of a fund to address the problem of delayed park maintenance will bring tremendous benefits to these communities.
US Travel once again expresses our deepest gratitude to our champions in Congress and the administration for their tireless bilateral efforts to preserve America’s national parks for future generations.
