Our current initiatives include:

Minmnpl-cover-imagenesota’s National Park Legacy – From the scenic waterways of the Mississippi and St. Croix Rivers, to the historic sites steeped in American Indian history at Grand Portage and Pipestone, to the vast waters of Voyageurs, Minnesota has an incredible National Park legacy. We provide resources for teachers and others who are interested in sharing this heritage.

10636457_686425941105_8954305546545620132_oNational Park Teen Ambassador Program – We provide young adults with the opportunity to learn about National Park Service careers and gain new outdoor skills on a multi-day trip to Voyageurs National Park.

Land Preservation Initiative – From time to time, private lands that are within the park boundary come up for sale. We work to purchase these properties so that they can become part of the park and be protected for future generations of Americans to enjoy.

Volunteer Programs – Whether you’d like to get involved at the park or in the Twin Cities, we have a number of exciting volunteer opportunities. You are invited to come to a weekend event or serve on an ongoing basis.
