A non-profit dedicated to the support and protection of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore
“How do we connect with and create the next generation of
park visitors, supporters, and advocates?”
If the Apostle Islands are to thrive in the face of changing
times, we must keep (or make) the park relevant to both current and future
generations, and to people of all demographics, including those who have yet to
experience why this national park is significant. “Friends” is so charged, and
especially with youth. But we also do it through our volunteer program,
accessibility initiatives, publications and outreach.
In his logbook entry, Stu Whipple writes about being a conduit between park visitors and the natural and cultural wonders of the parks, its history, meaning and promise to the past, present and future.
When adults gaze out at the Apostle Islands, they may see lighthouses, or a chance for adventure, or the relaxation of miles of sandy beaches to comb. But what does a fourth grader see when she visits the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore?
Sign up for our periodic Friends of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore email newsletters, full of information about how you can get involved, what we’re doing to benefit the park and much more. We promise we won’t flood your in-box or your mailbox.
