We wouldn't have the National Parks if it were not for our forefathers who thought ahead to protect our precious and sacred lands. On August 25, 1916, US President Woodrow Wilson signed the act creating the National Park Service, a new federal bureau in the Department of the Interior responsible for protecting the 35 national parks and monuments then managed by the department and those yet to be established.
