We work to protect Shenandoah National Park’s 200,000 acres of wild lands, wildlife and historic treasures from invasive species and climate change. SNP Trust ensures national park access for all children, regardless of economic background, and funds programs to inspire the next generation of preservationists and conservationists.
Keeping Shenandoah Wild
We help to protect Shenandoah National Park’s 200,000 acres of wild lands, and the wildlife that calls Shenandoah home.
Preserving History & Culture
Through our national parks, our work preserves the stories of who we are as a nation. Your dollars fund critical improvements, research, and projects that help better connect visitors to the park.
SNP Trust ensures national park access for all and funds programs to inspire and educate the next generation of conservationists.
Enhancing Visitor Experience
Shenandoah National Park is a destination for people all over the world. We work to improve their experience in campgrounds, on trails, and from mile 1 to 105 of Skyline Drive.
Along with yearly projects, we support ongoing campaigns in and around Shenandoah National Park.
The Edge Fund provides funding to assist landowners with establishing conservation easements on properties that protect the viewshed from the park, maintain park access, and other benefits.
Once it is restored, Boulder Cabin will provide inspirational housing for the park’s Artists-In-Residence. The cabin represents the significant history of Skyland Resort, as well as the legacy of art at Shenandoah.
It takes money to protect our national parks and magnificent places across the country. Yet congressional funding for national parks has declined dramatically—by 20%–over the last decade. Sequestration shaved another 5% from national park base operating funds. The Trust raises funds to invest in high-priority initiatives that will produce the greatest benefits for the national park. Our areas of funding include
Landscape and Wildlife Protection
Educating and Inspiring the Next Generation
Ensuring Extraordinary Visitor Experiences
Without financial support from the Trust, all of these areas would remain under-funded.
Thank you for your support.
