“A strong and vital National Park Service grows from our mission and our values. Our mission gives us purpose. It is the expression of the ideals for which we all work.
Our Core Values are a statement of the framework in which we accomplish our Mission. They express the manner in which, both individually and collectively, we pursue our mission. When we are challenged in fulfilling our mission, our Core Values sustain us and guide us in meeting the challenge.”
