2017 Projects in Your Park

We are excited to be kicking of the Trust’s 10th birthday this year, and to announce another year’s worth of projects and programs that you can help make possible in your park. We work closely with park leadership each year to ensure your donations are being directed to the park’s priority projects. Below is the full list of 2017 projects with links to learn more about each.

This year we are proud to announce 15 projects totaling $411,500 in support for you park!

These projects are only possible with your support. Whether you invest $25 or $2500 – or become a member of our Ranger Club by giving a monthly gift – you are ensuring a healthy and vibrant future for Shenandoah National Park and the wildlife, wild lands, and inspiration your park has to offer.
