National Parks Pursuit is a fun family board game that lets players learn about and experience our National Parks in an interesting and competitive way. From Acadia to Zion, all 63 United States National Parks are represented. With vintage style artwork, this trivia game is reminiscent of the posters created for the National Park Service by the Work Progress Administration that began in 1935 when President Franklin D. Roosevelt funded art projects as part of The New Deal. With simple rules and the option to be played one of two ways, this board game is an entertaining and lighthearted way to learn about our amazing National Parks.
Department of the Interior responsibilities for national parks began with a single public reservation called Yellowstone National Park, which was established on March 1, 1872. With an increasing awareness of the need for wilderness preservation, more parks were gradually created. In order to effectively manage these national treasures, each of which were initially managed independently, the National Park Service was set up in the Department of the Interior, by an act of August 25, 1916.
