Presque Isle Partnership
The Presque Isle Partnership works to enhance the visitor experience at Presque Isle State Park while protecting the natural environment. Since the Partnership’s founding in 1994, our donors have stepped forward to help fund worthwhile projects benefitting Presque Isle. That care and support helps to assure things like education programs, public spaces, recreational opportunities and historical sites continue to enrich the ways we enjoy our area’s greatest natural gift.
The list of projects and needs on the park continues to grow; many of which are not included in the current state budget and would not be completed. The Partnership is the single organization established for this type of contingency—your support makes all the difference.
