The Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park is a non-profit organization created to engage the community in enjoyment and support of the park and its programs. In partnership with the National Park Service, the Conservancy draws its strength from thousands of members, volunteers, advocates, and philanthropic supporters who share a love for our extraordinary 33,000-acre national park.
Cuyahoga Valley National Park was formed during the grassroots movement of the early 1970s to protect the valley from growing development threats. Culminating with Congressman John F. Seiberling and Congressman Ralph Regula’s successful campaign for Congressional designation, Cuyahoga Valley was recognized as a unit of the National Park System in 1974 and designated as a national park in 2000.
Our passion is helping ensure that our national park is preserved and protected for future generations. We cherish Cuyahoga Valley as a phenomenal civic asset, a treasured landscape, and a very special place firmly rooted in who we are and what we care for.
