The survey was conducted among Americans age 18+ in recognition of National Park Week, the presidentially proclaimed week beginning April 20th through April 28th. Among the findings:

  • 38% report feelings of nostalgia attached to national parks
  • And 65% report that the national parks inspire a sense of history
