“I am a member of BHPFA because nature is a natural healer and stress reliever. When we are able to spend time in the Black Hills, we are able to unwind and relax while taking in the beautiful sites and smells of pine trees. I want to preserve these areas for all to enjoy as our public lands are just that – for everyone to enjoy. And I want to help preserve it for future generations to enjoy.”  – Nicole

“This is a great way to support the Black Hills Parks and Forest. Thank you for giving back to our local National Parks. Thank all of you that work in the gift shops.” – Mark A. Weaver

“If you ever visit the Black Hills of Dakota, a membership in the association is warranted. The discount on products is worthwhile and you support the objectives of the regions parks, federal and state.” – Jan Gabin
