The National Park Service (NPS) is in the business of protecting history and, in many cases, prehistory. Signed into being in 1916 by President Woodrow Wilson, the NPS acts as steward over 58 national parks and more than 330 national monuments and landmarks, national seashores, battlefields, scenic trails, and recreational and cultural sites encompassing more than 80 million acres of land across the US, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, Saipan, and the Virgin Islands. Heritage education, research, and technology all fall under the NPS's responsibilities. The NPS also partners with federal, state, tribal and local governments as well as private organizations in preserving national parkland.
