Measuring glacial depths. Tracking elk and marmots to understand their migration patterns. Researching which plants are growing best in the land that was once covered by the waters behind the Elwha Dam.  

If not for your support, these important research projects centered on plants and those who call the parks home would cease.

Becuase of your support, more research is funded, enabling scientists in the parks to learn about the melting glaciers, healthy elk, and migrating fishers.

Each funded project aligns with the General Management Plan of the National Park, and falls into one or more of these four focus areas:

  • Advancing Science and Research
  • Improving Visitors’ Experiences
  • Building Volunteerism and Stewardship
  • Strengthening Youth and Family Programs

Together, we are funding programs that cannot be funded through current budgets. Anyone who loves these parks can contribute!

Thanks to donors like you, more than $3 million has been contributed to the parks.
