The National Park Service has a 30 year track record of working with partners in the Blackstone River Valley, and that tradition will continue with the Blackstone National Historical Park. The NPS will only own or manage a small percentage of the land within the park boundary, so working with our community partners to protect all of the resources within the park will continue to be a critical need.
Our list of partners will grow as we get more official agreements in place, so continue to check back to see who we are working with.
