IPA is a charitable organization that supports Indiana State Parks and Nature Preserves through advocacy, education, research, promotion, fundraising and assistance for local friends groups.
IPA has helped fund field trips to Indiana State Parks for Hoosier students, and has donated funding to local friends groups at McCormick’s Creek State Park and Tippecanoe River State Park to support restoration of historic structures at those sites. IPA advocates for funding and other needs for Indiana State Parks and Indiana’s state owned Nature Preserves, and provides information related to issues, projects and properties for IPA members and the public.
IPA also works in partnership to support fundraising initiatives through the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation (INRF) that are designated for Indiana State Parks or Nature Preserves, such as the Discovering the Outdoors Fund.
Support for IPA comes from memberships and donations. A variety of membership options are available. Donations are tax-deductible, and memberships can include state park annual passes and other gifts. Visit www.indianaparksalliance.org for details and membership information.
