Inscription. The national park idea is often referred to as one of America's greatest contributions to world culture. America's natural and cultural heritage—its very character and soul—is preserved in over 360 units of the National Park System.

The National Park Service administers the system, striving to preserve these places for the future while providing for public enrichment and enjoyment today. Yellowstone National Park was established in 1872 as the world's first national park—the first in this National Park System.
