The U.S. currently has 59 areas of land in 27 different states that are designated as National Parks by the federal government. The National Park Service Organic Act was signed into law in 1916 "To conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and wild life therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations."
