Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve


Join Our Friends

Many National Park Service areas have Friends groups that help the park protect and share America's treasures. Friends groups sponsor exhibits and lectures, raise money for special projects, and serve as a liasion between community and park.

At Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, there is a Friends group at the Acadian Cultural Center in Lafayette.


Support Your Park

The National Park Service cares for America's treasures, and you can help.

  • Be a good park visitor. Take nothing but photographs, leave nothing but footprints. Enjoy yourself and remember future visitors who will come after you hoping to enjoy these American treasures too.
  • Be a volunteer. There's nothing more rewarding than warm thanks from visitors who've just seen their first alligator or danced their first Cajun two-step!
  • Support the park's bookstores. Park bookstores run by cooperating associations donate a share of their proceeds to help fund exhibits and programs.
  • Become a friend of the park. The park's Acadian Cultural Center in Lafayette has a Friends group to support that site's work in the community. Click here to learn more.
