What We Do

The Forest Park Conservancy's mission is focused on protecting Forest Park's ecological health while encouraging responsible recreation and access. We believe these values are not only consistent, they are interdependent: the more people visit Forest Park and experience just how special a place this is, the more the public will support and value it. And the more people value this unique urban forest, the brighter its future will be. That's why our four-person stewardship staff, seasonal technicians, and more than 1,000 volunteers spend over 10,000 hours in the field every year.
