Partners in Sustainability
Looking at Lake Superior from Isle Royale, it’s easy to feel like we’ve “gotten away from it all.” But it is clear that climate change is already impacting our remote island.
One of the world’s fastest warming lakes, Superior’s cold-water fisheries are declining, water levels rise and fall dramatically, and powerful storms batter recreational, cultural, and historical resources, such as docks and lighthouses.
Starting in 2023, National Parks of Lake Superior Foundation (NPLSF) is collaborating with multiple sources to promote decarbonizing all five Lake Superior national parks and increase climate resiliency. For Isle Royale, that means trading fossil fuels for renewable energy solutions. Together, we can help visitors, real and virtual, understand what is at stake - and what is possible.
About the NPLSF The National Parks of Lake Superior Foundation (NPLSF) exists to provide financial support for projects and programs that preserve the natural resources and cultural heritage of the five Lake Superior national parks: Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, Grand Portage National Monument, Isle Royale National Park, Keweenaw National Historical Park, and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Funded through grants and private donations, NPLSF projects and programs ensure that these great parks and historic sites are maintained for the enjoyment of all current and future visitors.
