There is currently no cost for being a member of the National Park City Family.
We currently charge a fee for the application process to cover our costs. This includes the desk and peer review and the peer visit, as well as administration costs. Travel expenses make up a big part of this, so the final fee will depend on where your city is.
If necessary, the National Park City Foundation will work with you to secure funding to cover costs.
