National parks (and monuments) in United States are called the “country’s best ideas” and the National Park Service is celebrating its 100th Anniversary next year. 2016 will be a year of celebrations and Arizona will play a significant role. It has 24 national parks and monuments such as Grand Canyon NP, Canyon de Chelly NM, Saguaro NP and Chiricahua NM. Additionally, the park service is working on the “new crop” of land stewards and trying to attract a more diverse set of workers and volunteers with programs such as Next Generation Rangers.
