Support Your Park
Several ways exit in which to support Virgin Islands National Park. One may do so by joining the Friends of Virgin Islands National Park, volunteering, making a donation or simply just browsing the Eastern National (the Park's Cooperating Association) bookstore located in the Visitor Center and purchasing an item. All support Virgin Islands National Park in different ways.
You can make a gift to benefit our park either directly or through our primary non profit organization. If you make the gift directly to the park, the entire gift will be used for the purpose you identify. Your check will be deposited in a government account and the full amount will be spent as you intended. Government accounts are non-interest bearing and cannot generate interest between the time it is deposited and the time it is spent. For security and other reasons, you cannot make on line contributions directly to the park or National Park Service, however, you can stop in or mail a check to the park's visitor center to donate.
Did You Know?
The Spiny Sea Urchin has long spines that can readily penetrate the skin on the slightest touch, causing severe pain and possibly allergic reactions. Because the barbs cannot be completely removed, soaking affected areas in vinegar can speed up the in-body dissolving time, typically 3-4 weeks.
