Take it up a notch and become a Sponsor! As a Sponsor you can direct us to use your much appreciated donation to fund specific events or projects: Our fundraisers like the 5K Critter Trail Race and the Kayak Drawings of Chance, the Jazz at Sunset event; and special projects like the wheelchair/all-accessible Glass Bottom Boat with an assistive  listening system - now waiting for coastguard approval, and the River Through Time Project - now in its planning stage.

Of course, the bottom line is that the funding we provide the Park each year enables its staff to be keen stewards of this 5,000-acre State Park and its five-mile-long Silver River that boasts over thirty springs. Your sponsorship helps us improve Park Visitor Services  by paying for concert series, meals for volunteers, Wi-Fi in the Ranger Station, and improvements to our Welcome Center; it helps us support Park Natural and Cultural Resources through the purchase of a new pickup crane, refurbishing an ice machine, and repairing the roof of the amphitheater; and helps us to fund Park Maintenance requests like a new shed, tools and equipment.

Be assured your Sponsorship goes a long way!
