The More Than Just Parks Story

We founded More Than Just Parks after a spur of the moment road trip with friends to the Grand Canyon during which we truly discovered the National Parks for the first time.

“Setting foot inside of a National Park is like setting foot on another planet. It’s an otherworldly experience.”

Will Pattiz

Growing up in Georgia we, like many Americans, had never been exposed to the majesty and vastness of our great national parks and public lands. Not long after that trip we set out to try and capture some of the majesty of these incredible places through our lenses and share them with the world.

Our goal here is simple, to share the beauty of our national parks and public lands in an effort to get Americans and the world to see the true value in land conservation.

“Our national parks and forests are national treasures and they deserve to be brought to the forefront so that people can see and experience their majesty. This is the best way we can ensure their continued survival and prosperity for future generations and for all time.”

We hope to accomplish this goal through visually stunning short films, engaging online guides, and breathtaking imagery. Eventually, we plan to create short films covering each national park and forest.
