Calling all friends of Voyageurs National Park!

We are a community of people committed to the ongoing stewardship of Minnesota's National Park. You can help us protect this national treasure.  Become a member of Voyageurs National Park Association today!


Our work began in 1965, when a group of far-sighted 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.

Together, we carry on their legacy by ensuring that the park is protected, supporting key park projects, and by sharing Voyageurs with the next generation. Learn more or make a gift to support this work today.

VNPA provides a way for me to help make sure the legacy of Voyageurs lives on and my kids can have the same experiences with their kids in the park.
