“Our strong partnerships are removing barriers for people of all abilities to explore the Apostle Islands.”

“Friends” and our partners are working to make the park one of the most accessible, inaccessible national parks. And we are doing it strategically one project at a time. The “Wilderness Accessibility Fund” has helped us to leverage donations for grants and matches, and grow the impact. The need to enhance park accessibility is identified in the park’s management plan but shrinking budgets have put projects out of reach without outside help. Enter “Friends.”

Let’s build something together.
