Friends of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore
The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore was established in 1970 to preserve the naturally wild and beautiful islands just off the northwest shoreline of Wisconsin in Lake Superior. It includes 21 islands and 12 miles of mainland lakeshore. “The Friends” have been supporting the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore since 2002.

FAINL supports a variety of projects through funding and volunteer hours to improve accessibility to the Park for all visitors. From accessible docks and board walks to approachable information, we work to make everyone feel welcome in the Park.
The Apostle Islands have been drawing people to the shores of Lake Superior for thousands of years and the area is filled with a rich history. Part of our mission is to help protect and preserve those valuable resources for future generations.
We strive to build a foundation that ensures sustainable protection of all park resources – natural and cultural.
We focus on practices and projects that safely enhance the visitor experience without compromising a sense of adventure.
