Zion National Park Foundation is the official fundraising partner of Zion National Park. The Foundation operates as a division of Zion Natural History Association (ZNHA), a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit corporation in the State of Utah. Established in 1929, ZNHA is governed by an elected board of directors who serve as volunteers and work in direct consultation with the Superintendent of Zion National Park. ZNHA publishes books, maps, guides and other interpretive products, and operates the retail sales in park visitor centers. The retail operations of ZNHA fund the overhead of the Foundation, making it possible for more than 90 percent of Foundation-generated funds to go directly to important projects in Zion National Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument and Pipe Spring National Monument.
Since the Foundation was established in 2007, we have raised money to rehabilitate a historic building in Zion National Park; preserve historic and contemporary art of Zion; support programs which sustain the desert bighorn, the California condor, the peregrine falcon, as well as archeological and historical sites; and enhance Junior Ranger Programs.
Zion National Park Trail Fund
The Zion National Park Trail Fund is currently receiving donations for the Emerald Pools Trail Rehabilitation Project.
In 2010, it rained for 8 consecutive days causing massive landslides on the Middle Emerald Pools Trail which has caused the trail to remain closed since that time due to concern for visitor safety. This project will fix and re-route sections of the trail in order to provide visitors greater access to the Middle and Upper Emerald Pools along this historically significant trail. The project will fund the repairs for two sections of trail on the existing Middle Emerald Pools Trail as well as re-route approximately one mile of trail. Give now.
