Title: US National Park Service Initiatives to Promote Geologic Heritage and Geodiversity in 2020
Description: Numerous National Park Service Conservation Assistance Programs (National Heritage Areas (NHAs), National Natural Landmarks (NNLs), National Register of Historic Places and World Heritage Site programs can help promote Geoheritage and Geodiversity initiatives. Preservation partnerships are likely to be successful when a bottom-up approach is used and grassroots organizations are the major proponents of promoting a specific geoheritage area.
