Rochester, N.Y. — Kodak announced today that it will donate over $200,000 worth of digital imaging equipment to 55 national parks, including pro- and consumer-level digital cameras, docks, memory cards and card readers and professional photo printers.

According to a statement from Kodak, the donation aimed “to help the national parks harness the power of pictures to better connect people to their national parks and thus enrich the experience of the millions of people who visit the parks each year.”

"As a proud partner of America's national parks, Kodak has generously donated digital photographic equipment to 55 national park service sites, said Mike Bento, marketing and communications senior VP, National Park Foundation.

“This equipment will be used to enhance visitor and volunteer programs, assist parks with creating or expanding their digital archives, and enhancing park print publications," Bento added.
