Our Impact

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.

Special Campaigns

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.

Support 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
Historic Preservation
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.
