Join Our Friends

National Parks of Lake Superior Foundation

This friends group is a privately supported effort to fund special projects in the five U.S. national parks on Lake Superior. The five parks are Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, Grand Portage National Monument, Isle Royale National Park, Keweenaw National Historical Park, and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

Donations to the National Parks of Lake Superior Foundation assist parks with worthy projects over and above funding for basic park operations. Projects include preservation of historic structures and lighthouses, improved visitor services, and enhanced environmental education programs.

The NPLSF is actively seeking partners to assist in developing this special new funding organization to complement efforts by the Friends organizations of individual parks. Please contact the Foundation for learn more about becoming involved in these efforts.
