Closing Our National Parks is a Disaster: See How Big of a Disaster Here

10/05/2013 01:02PM ● Published by Steve

In a typical October, the communities surrounding national parks profit from more than 750,000 daily visitors who spend, on average, well over $30 million per day. Because of the government shutdown, those communities now stand to lose as much as $30 million each day the national parks remain closed.
This is a conservative estimate; figures from a National Park Service press release calculate the losses across broader economic impacts, including sales, labor income, and value added from national parks visits, placing the overall economic loss at $76 million per day.
