A new report from the National Park Service shows that the five U.S. national parks in Kansas generate a lot of money for the state. Dave Smith is Superintendent for the Brown V Board National Historic Site.

Smith says across the state, national parks generated revenue of about 4.6 million dollars in the communities surrounding the parks. He says those dollars helped to support 80 jobs in Kansas.
