To mark the 100th anniversary of the creation of the National Park Service, the first 90 minutes of “Washington Journal” were devoted to the federal agency that manages all national parks, many national monuments, and other conservation and historical properties. Telephone lines were open for viewer responses to the question, “Have you been to a national park?” Noelle Straub from the C-SPAN News Desk spoke at length about her Greenwire special series to mark the occasion. Throughout the program video and photographs from various national parks were shown.

From the National Mall in Washington, D.C., C-SPAN spoke with Mike Reynolds, National Park Service deputy director of operations. He talked about federal government and public support the NPS receives, and the challenges the agency faces. Several visitors to the National Mall were also interviewed about their visits to and interest in the national parks. close
