The Shenandoah National Park Trust is the official nonprofit partner of Shenandoah National Park. We help you help your park by investing in programs and initiatives which help ensure that Shenandoah - YOUR park - remains a crown jewel of the Park Service, an economic driver for the region, and a national treasure for all to enjoy, for generations to come.
We work closely with park leadership to identify priority projects and programs that government funding no longer covers. Specifically, we focus our initiatives in four key areas - protecting natural and cultural resources, connecting people to the park, youth education, and enhancing the park service.
Your park is facing real challenges.
Invasive species. Infrastructure in dire need of repair. A generation of youth losing touch with nature.
And that’s just the beginning…
By donating to the Trust, you become one of our partners - one of your park's partners - who will help them meet these challenges.
Your partnership safeguards the environment. Over the past decade, Shenandoah’s biologists have launched a Forest Health Initiative that is strengthening native habitats and buffering our park from the impacts of climate change.
Your park needs you now more than ever
