About ParkHats


It's simple. When you love hats and National Parks as much as we do, you put National Parks on hats and the result is ParkHats.

Each hat tells a story of an adventure or a dream of an adventure.

ParkHats was originally founded in 2016 by the legendary Will Harper, who has passed the baton to Joe, Erin, and Ricky. Joe and Erin are brother and sister, and Ricky is their long-time friend. The 3 now operate all aspects of this tiny but mighty company.

As always 10% of profits go to preserving our parks. And our true goal is to preserve them for everyone (all skin colors, ages, socioeconomic classes, abilities) Grounded in sustainability and environmental education, it’s our dream to see everyone get to visit a National Park.

Joe is a teacher, dad, and avid adventurer. Living in Atlanta, he has the mountains closer than the beach and is a short flight away from hiking in Colorado. He’s the kind of guy that will sit in a lawn chair in the driveway just to see who will walk by or invite you on a day trip to the mountains. His favorite park is Sequoia, but is open to have others change his mind! 

Erin is a mom of 3 and foster mom to many. She lives in the Northwoods where her husband pastors a small church. In her free time she runs a young girls adventure group, homeschools in an old one room schoolhouse and volunteers at Camp Daniel, a camp that serves the disabled population. Her favorite park is Arches. 

Ricky is a nerd at heart with a taste for adventure. He lives in Milwaukee with his wife and two dogs and they all travel together often for trips of all kinds - quick drives to enjoy all that Wisconsin has to offer, longer road trips, or international adventures (OK, the dogs don’t always get to go). His favorite park is Zion, but he has a long way to go to catch up to Joe and Erin on experiencing them all, so this is subject to change.
