A BIG lake takes a BIG commitment!

Lake Superior and its five beautiful national parks offer abundant fresh water, habitat, recreation, and cultural heritage opportunities for everyone to enjoy.

But the parks cannot operate without independent financial support and dedicated volunteers.  Our vibrant parks depend on the National Parks of Lake Superior Foundation—and we depend on you. 

Together, we can:

  1. Help struggling moose populations by working with Isle Royale National Park and the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa to identify and address habitat and health threats.
  2. Increase climate resilience by transitioning park buildings, transportation, and trail equipment off fossil fuel and onto clean energy, reducing air and noise pollution and modeling “net zero” strategies visitors can replicate at home.
  3. Provide educational resources, from film documentaries and our lively Lake Superior podcast to our free K-12 moose and wolf curriculum “Lessons from the Wilderness."
  4. Support cultural heritage events including Rendezvous Days, a living history event at the Grand Portage National Monument, and the Celebration Pow Wow, hosted by the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa (Anishinaabe).
  5. Collaborate with park superintendents and tribal leaders to address wilderness and cultural resource management and other vital issues such as urgently needed park staff housing at Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

Please join us by making a donation today!

National Parks of Lake Superior Foundation is the official 501(c)(3) friends group for Lake Superior’s national parks: Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, Grand Portage National Monument, Isle Royale National Park, Keweenaw National Historic Park, and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
