National Park Posters Announces Kickstarter Campaign — Releases New Posters
These new posters, by photographer and graphic artist Robert B. Decker include some of America’s most beautiful and most popular parks! From the Pacific Northwest through the Black Hills and Badlands of North Dakota to the Great Smokies, Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains, these new posters remind us of the natural treasures, vibrant culture and rich history preserved by our National Parks.
Posters in the “Centennial Collection”, are available exclusively now on Kickstarter, featuring 10 new designs for:

This is the Ultimate Glacier National Park Gift for anyone who loves Glacier National Park!

I’ve just started working with NatureBridge, an organization that fosters environmental literacy through hands-on environmental science programs in nature’s classroom. I’ll be creating a poster for the 11,000 children and teens who attend their Yosemite National Park programs each year.
I was also fortunate enough to visit their campus inside Olympic National Park last week. What an awesome and beautiful place…and the kids looked like they were having the time of their lives!
With their vision for a more sustainable planet, NatureBridge advocates for effective environmental education in our schools to create pathways to environmental literacy for all young people.

Last month, our “Celebrate the 99th Anniversary of the National Park Service” promotion raised more than $1,000.00 and I’ve made a donation to the National Park Foundation in the amount of $1,080.00, which will help them protect more than 400 national parks and 84 million acres of the world’s most treasured landscapes, ecosystems, and historical sites for generations to come.
So, hats off to you! A little crowdfunding goes a long way!
The National Park Foundation, in partnership with the National Park Service, enriches America’s national parks and programs through private support, safeguarding our heritage and inspiring generations of national park enthusiasts.

I recently visited Washington state and was fortunate enough to have great weather…and made some great photographs which will serve as the basis for two new posters — one for Olympic National Park and one for Mount Rainier National Park.
These parks, along with Great Smoky, Shenandoah, Badlands, Wind Cave, Joshua Tree and Channel Islands will be included in the next National Park Poster Collection, which will be available first to backers on Kickstarter. The campaign is slated to launch in about 2 weeks! Stay Tuned!!!
When I visited Badlands National Park in South Dakota, I was interviewed by the Rapid City Journal, and they are planning on running a feature story about The National Park Poster Project. I’ll let you know when they have a publication date!
I was also featured in the Coloradan, the alumni publication for the University of Colorado, Boulder. It was a very nice article and they featured nine posters! You can see it here: Coloradan Magazine: A Poster for Every Park
And finally, the original collection of posters in The National Park Poster Project have been chosen as finalists by the Art Director’s Club of Denver in their Annual Awards Show. The show is on the 15th…and I’ll let you know the final outcome!
Postcards for all 22 National Park posters are available now…and they make an easy and affordable alternative to traditional Christmas cards.
You can order in sets for you favorite parks, or order the complete collection!

As part of the Annual 1872 Society Weekend — October 10-12, 2015 at the legendary Old Faithful Inn — the Yellowstone Park Foundation will host a very special, fun-filled weekend for supporters. Activities include a silent auction and 10 of the Yellowstone National Park posters will be up for bid this Saturday. I donated the posters, at their request, and am hoping it will help to raise funds for their strategic initiatives and current projects.
The Yellowstone Park Foundation is the official fundraising partner of Yellowstone National Park. We work in cooperation with the National Park Service to fund projects and programs that protect, preserve, and enhance the natural and cultural resources and the visitor experience of Yellowstone National Park. – Learn more at: http://www.ypf.org
