Support Your Park

Many people are drawn to find ways to get involved in supporting the park. No matter what your skills or the amount of time available to contribute, you will be able to find a way to get involved.

First of all, be sure to leave the park in at least as good condition as when you arrived. Many of the things you can do to keep the park beautiful are obvious, but there are some little things that you might not think of that can make a big difference.

Stop by our visitor center in the Park to browse the books and merchandise that will help you learn more about the natural and cultural heritage of the area. Buy a souvenir to remember your trip to River Raisin National Battlefield.
