You Cared and We Made History! #HVGives


“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” - Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

Your support means everything to us. Thanks to each and every one of you, we made history yesterday: raising $19,886 in ONE day! The team at the Palisades Parks Conservancy gives each of you a big bear hug for your gift of time and funding during the 24-hour Hudson Valley Gives campaign.

Preserving history and advocating for our parks  is at the heart of everything the Conservancy does each day.  You are also at the heart of what we do each day – ensuring you have access, can enjoy and learn from all that nature and history has to offer in the Palisades Interstate Park system. 

Your support on May 15th enabled us to win additional match dollars, earning an extra $2,000 in funding. Thanks to your timely gifts, the Conservancy will also receive an advertising package valued at nearly $1,000. The birds are singing and the leaves are dancing with happiness!

The founders of the Palisades Interstate Park system  preserved the Cliffs in 1900 with a strong spirit to save and  steward these lands. 119 years later, on May 15, 2019, you follow in the footsteps of these great leaders, ensuring our parks are not taken for granted.  We cheer you on!


The Palisades Parks Conservancy, in partnership with the Commission, strives to sustain the 125,000 acres of lands that make up the Palisades Interstate Park (PIP) system.

We hope you are outside today, enjoying one of the 20 parks, 8 American Revolution sites, or any of the multitude of cultural and historical opportunities in the PIP. Check out all the amazing programs coming up on our Calendar of Events!
