Dear Shenandoah National Park friends, advocates, and allies,

At the Shenandoah National Park Trust, we are thinking about you and want to offer you our support.

First, we encourage you to follow the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization and your state health department’s guidelines when it comes to protecting yourself and others to stop the spread of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

As of March 18, Shenandoah National Park is open. 

According to the National Park Service, the park and Skyline Drive are open. Entrance fees are waived until further notice. Other facilities are still closed for the season. 

We are social creatures. Yet the best way we can help slow this spread of coronavirus is to engage in “social distancing.” That means, for the time being, we encourage you to abide by any Special Alerts from SNP. It’s great to spend time outdoors, but please keep social distancing in mind.

As of yesterday, the Trust team is working remotely as we continue our work to support the park. 

Here are a few ways you can continue to be a part of the SNPT family over the coming weeks and months:

– Write postcards to your local Park Rangers who need your support more than ever. Please address your envelope to:
Sally Hurlbert, Shenandoah National Park, 3655 US Highway 211 East, Luray, VA 22835
– Support the work of the Shenandoah National Park Trust. We are still moving forward!
– Follow us on FacebookInstagram and Twitter for updates. 
– Keep informed on upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, and park updates on our Blog.

We appreciate you always being there for the Shenandoah National Park Trust. And we know we can count on you to support the park through these uncertain times. This is when we get to choose how to act. So let us choose to stick together for public lands and our community.

Thank you.

– The staff and board of the Shenandoah National Park Trust
