The More Than Just Parks Story
We (The Pattiz Brothers) 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.
Growing up in Georgia we, like many Americans, had never been exposed to the majesty of western and and National Park landscapes. After that trip we set out to share the wonders of the National Parks with as many people as possible thereby ensuring their future protection for generations to come.
We plan 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.

What is More Than Just Parks?
More Than Just Parks was created to be the best online resource for everything National Parks and Public Lands.
We create visually stunning national park guides, award-winning short films, breathtaking photos, and insightful tips to make your next National Park trip the best yet.
At More Than Just Parks we are committed to the conservation, preservation, and enjoyment of public lands. We believe that National Parks and more broadly public lands at large including National Forests, National Monuments, Wilderness, BLM, and beyond should be protected from the interests, for the people.
National Park Films
We are creating short films covering each National Park. So far we have released films on 13 of the 62 parks and have begun work on many more.
We’ve also begun creating films on more public lands including National Forests, National Grasslands, and more.
The mission of More Than Just Parks is to share the wonders of the National Parks and public lands with as many people as possible thereby ensuring their future protection for generations to come.
