Our Mission

The Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP) is a non-profit organization created to engage public support and provide services to enhance public use and enjoyment of the park. We connect local residents and out-of-state visitors to CVNP, helping preserve it for future generations.

In close partnership with the National Park Service, we co-manage a number of initiatives in the Cuyahoga Valley. Two highlights of this partnership include the TRAILS FOREVER initiative, aimed at creating a world-class trail system in CVNP, and the Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center, where northeast Ohio youth come to learn about nature and experience the park first-hand. Other key initiatives include the co-managed volunteer program, cultural arts events, space rental of the park’s historic buildings, and our Trail Mix retail stores.
