A BIG lake takes a BIG commitment!

The majesty of Lake Superior and its five beautiful national parks are undeniable. 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

Your contribution will help:

  • Provide educational resources including Return of the Wolves, a beautiful film documenting the repopulating of wolves back to Isle Royale National Park, with a companion curriculum entitled Lessons from the Wilderness.
  • Collaborate with park superintendents, park friends groups, leaders from the Red Cliff Band and Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, and others to identify and address top concerns of the parks.
  • Introduce the public to the people and stories of the National Parks, communities, and tribal lands of Lake Superior through the highly acclaimed podcast series Lake Superior Podcast with Frida Waara and Walt Lindala. 

Please show your support with a gift today!

National Parks of Lake Superior Foundation is the official 501©(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.
