Business & Community

Community engagement is key to our ability to protect and preserve our park today and tomorrow. This means that we work hard to promote our conservation values among visitors and residents. We do this through a variety of programs and events throughout the year. Each of our programs and events offers businesses the opportunity to get involved. In turn, we do our best to promote the support of our business donors.

We would not be able to do the important work that keeps our Virgin Islands National Park thriving for visitors and residents alike without the generous support of the business community.

Please contact Jennifer Stone at jstone@friendsvinp.org or (340) 779-4940 to get involved.
