Preserving History & Culture

Our work includes historical preservation of buildings and sites within park boundaries, trail maintenance, and restoring the region’s native habitat.

SNP Trust initiates improvements, critical research, and projects that help better connect visitors to the park. Over the years, your donations have funded critical preservation and restoration projects, including special projects like the Hawksbill Observation Platform (Senator Byrd), the Old Rag Overlook Guard Rail, and the Pinnacles Conservation Center (CCC).
