The Natchez Trace Parkway Association is a non-profit organization that assists the Natchez Trace Parkway by seeking funding and political support for the National Park Service's seventh most visited unit. Its membership roster includes dedicated individuals from Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee who are interested in the success of the National Scenic Byway and All-American Road. Originally established to spearhead the completion of the Natchez Trace Parkway, the Association now supports the development and implementation of Parkway facilities and programs that will enhance the visitor experiences both in the park and in its adjacent communities. Historically, the Association worked closely with the Congressional delegations and local government officials from the three states in which the Parkway is located. This relationship continues today.

Membership applications may be obtained by contacting the Natchez Trace Parkway Association.
