A one-of-a-kind experience of hiking, good food, live music, dancing, and s’mores around the campfire!

Lace up your dancing shoes and find your way to the party! Join the Conservancy for a one-of-a-kind summer celebration. This year, the Conservancy is hosting Elevation at a new location! Join us at the beautiful Indigo Lake in Howe Meadow! Surrounded by stunning views, you’ll enjoy a tasty dinner, toast s’mores around a campfire and dance the night away to live music in the park.

The Conservancy is the official philanthropic partner of Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP) and your gift helps us preserve one of our region’s most important assets.
