The National Park Service was established by an act of the US Congress in 1916, under President Woodrow Wilson. It was assigned the arduous task to: “conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life therein and…leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.” (source: Britannica)
