Who are America's National Parks and Eastern National?
Eastern National is a non-profit cooperating association which operates park stores at over 130 National Parks and related sites. Eastern National also operates the America's National Parks online park stores. Collectively the online storefronts represent our brick and mortar locations and other parks as well.
How does my purchase from this website, or from any of your stores, support the national parks?
As a non-profit company, our profits go to support the interpretive, preservation and educational programs of the National Park Service.
Does your website contain all the products from your stores?
Each online store contains at least 30 top-selling products form each store, not our full inventory. We are always adding new products to our site, so please visit frequently! As the No. 1 provider of National Park-related materials we carry over 60,000 items.
I can't find the product I am looking for. What now?
If searching on our website doesn't turn up the product you want, don't worry - just email or call us. Email: CustomerCare@EasternNational.org, or call: 1 (877) NAT-PARK (international callers please dial "01" before the number).
If I order from you on-line, will this result in SPAM mail or my address being sold to other companies?
If I order on-line, will my credit card number and personal information remain secure?
Ordering on-line with a credit card is safer than doing it in an actual store. Your information is kept protected and private at all times.
