Should National Parks Put A Limit On Visitors?

As the National Park Service celebrates its 100th anniversary this summer, record crowds are expected to pack the system’s national park sites. In 2015, a record 307.2 million people visited national parks, monuments, lakeshores and more, according to NPS data. That’s a whopping 14.5 million person increase from just the year before.

As a solution, park managers say, it might be limiting the number of visitors allowed through the gates.
