Donate a Tree: A Living Investment in Your National Park

One of the many important projects that Mississippi Park Connection supports is habitat restoration throughout the park, from removing invasive species to planting native grasses and trees. Together with our many volunteers, the National Park Service has planted thousands of trees each year to restore the banks of the Mississippi River.

Your donation of $100 will plant a tree in our park.

Your gift also makes you a member of Mississippi Park Connection! Invest in your national park by donating a tree today.

Invest in a grove (12 trees) with a gift of $1,000 and you will have an opportunity to join park staff for the planting on site.

All donors’ names will be included in our Tree Builders Trust. You may also choose to donate in honor of a loved one and have that person’s name added to our Tree Builders Trust.
