National Geographic has been publishing stories about national parks since 1912. This year, National Geographic commemorates the 100th anniversary of the creation of the National Parks Service with a yearlong series on U.S. and international parks. From the Grand Canyon and Denali to Cuba, Peru, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, we’ll present a photographic vision showing the beauty of parks, the challenges they face, and what parks mean to all of us.
