There are many ways you can help.

Your donations help the Foundation fund special projects in our Dane County Parks and provide grants to local Friends groups for their volunteer efforts. You can also donate your time by becoming a volunteer. Our volunteers put in thousands of hours of work every year so that our parks can provide enjoyment for all, for generations to come.
