Develop, improve, promote, and increase opportunities for the public by advancing education, experience, and enjoyment.

Often in a park area, you will find an educational, park-themed bookstore inhabiting a portion of the park’s visitor center, or located nearby. Park staff may even handle the sales of these materials as part of your experience within such a visitor center.

While such a bookstore may enhance the interpretive program in a park, it also falls outside of the National Park Service’s mission, duties, or visitor expectations – though the overlap of goals and the cooperative efforts tends to blur the distinction and provide an oftentimes seamless appearance. Working with the park, a cooperating association provides the educational materials for this enhanced opportunity.

Cooperating Associations and their operation within our national parks is congressionally approved. Each association is a non-profit, non-government corporation that is an independent entity separate from the park.
