Affiliated Areas of the NPS

This quest involves visiting the Affiliated Areas of the National Park System. These are generally places that are related to existed National Park units, but they are not federally owned or managed. Indeed, the affiliated area status has been ill-defined over time, but rarely conveys much beyond technical assistance provided by the NPS to state or a private entity. In short, affiliated area designations are often sought as a way to boost tourism, not to identify or protect important places.
