Site gives a list with illustrations of a collection of National Parks Passport Cancellation Stamps. The "Passport to Your National Parks" program was created by Eastern National Parks Association (EN) and launched in 1986. EN provides passport cancellation stampers to sites administered by the U. S. National Park Service (NPS), NPS affiliated sites, national heritage areas, and national trails. The passport stamps look like the round portion of a postal cancellation. EN publishes two styles of books to collect the rubber stamped impressions in. Shown below is the standard or small version which is 3 1/2 x 6 inches and has a fixed number of pages. The "Passport Explorer Edition" is a much larger 7-ring expandable binder which lets you add more pages as needed. Some definitions: Passport stamps have changeable dates built in to them. EN issued stamps are termed official, standard or regular passport stamps. Stamps that differ from the EN-style are called non-standard passport stamps. Bonus stamps do not have changeable dates and are usually pictorial in design. I have included here passport stamps for some of the other federal/national areas administered by the U. S. Bureau of Land Management, U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and U. S. Forest Service, and several other agencies.
