What is the National Parks of Lake Superior Foudnation?
The National Parks of Lake Superior Foundation (NPLSF) is the only official non-profit 501(c) (3) fund raising partner of the National Park Service (NPS) for all five US national park sites on Lake Superior - Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, Grand Portage National Monument, Isle Royale National Park, Keweenaw National Historical Park, & Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The NPLSF mission is to provide financial support for projects and programs that preserve the natural resources and cultural heritage of these five Lake Superior national parks for the enjoyment of current and future generations of visitors. The projects and programs NPLSF supports are beyond the NPS budget and could not be accomplished without financial help from NPLSF. Using funds from grants and private donations, NPLSF collaborates with the NPS to continue the legacy of our Lake Superior national parks, and provide the national park experience visitors expect and deserve.
