Our Roots Run Deep!

For over 75 years our funding has helped alleviate budgetary shortfalls and enables the dedicated public servants to extend more educational and recreational opportunities to more people than they otherwise would be able to. We can’t do this all by ourselves, our members make it possible to fill in the gaps left by federal funding. If you would like to learn more about how BHPFA supporters assist our partners, consider becoming an annual member or giving a monthly donation.

Why are YOU a member of Black Hills Parks & Forests Association?

“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
