Z Less than 500 acres. 1 Financial data are those associated with the National Park System. Certain other functions of the National Park Service (principally the activities absorbed from the former Heritage Conservation and Recreation Service in 1981) are excluded.
2 Includes funds carried over from prior years.
3 For calendar year.
4 Through 1990, combined data for North Cascades National Park and two adjacent National Recreation Areas are included in National Parks total.
5 Includes military areas.
6 Federal land only, as of Dec. 31. Federal land acreages, in addition to National Park Service administered lands, also include lands within national park system area boundaries but under the administration of other agencies. Year-to-year changes in the Federal lands figures include changes in the acreages of these other lands and hence often differ from "net acquisition."
