Become a Friend of Voyageurs National Park!
Voyageurs National Park Association is the official charitable partner of Minnesota’s National Park. We represent a community of people who love Voyageurs and are committed to its ongoing stewardship.
Our work began in 1965, when a group of visionary citizens came together with the goal of protecting the lands and waters of the Rainy, Kabetogama, Namakan, and Sand Point Lakes region of northern Minnesota. Voyageurs National Park was established in 1975.
Today, your gift helps us carry on their legacy. In partnership with the National Park Service, Voyageurs National Park Association works to preserve the wild character and unique experience of Voyageurs by funding projects and programs that will sustain it for generations to come.
Encompassing 218,000 acres, Voyageurs is one of the wildest, most scenic, geologically unique, and historically rich areas of Minnesota and the National Park system. Voyageurs is known for its amazing water-based recreation and camping experiences, pristine lakes and world-class fishing, boreal forests, calling loons, winter ice roads, and starry skies.
