With the support of park Friends Groups, we enrich the park experience for more that 275 million visitors every year and enhance our care of more than 400 national parks. Meet some of our Friends:
The Conservancy For Cuyahoga Valley National Park
, through its Trails Forever Capital Project fundraising campaign, is helping the park develop a new system of off-road bicycle trails along the park's eastern edge.
Everglades National Park's Everglades Wilderness Writing Expedition
was made possible through generous support from the National Park Foundation
and the South Florida National Parks Trust
, and through in-kind support from North Carolina Outward Bound School, University of Miami, Florida International University, Florida Atlantic University, the South Dade News Leader and Fairchild Tropical Botanical Gardens. This program sponsored 10 local journalism and writing students in a four week immersion experience in the park's Marjory Stoneman Douglas Wilderness.
