WASHINGTON — Strict prohibitions on allowing advertising and marketing in the national parks in return for donations will remain, spelling an end to a Park Service proposal that called for looser restrictions.
The Park Service proposed last year letting some employees solicit donations, accepting alcohol and tobacco company donations for the first time and giving donors the right to put their names on rooms, benches and bricks. All were dropped in new guidelines issued Monday by Park Service Director Fran Mainella."
