Established in 1989, the St. Joseph County Parks Foundation is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization with the purpose of assisting the St. Joseph County Park Board in land acquisition, facility and program enhancements, greenways connections and stewardship of natural and cultural resources. Through your donations, we are able to care for and enhance the investment in our County parks.
Celebrating 75 Years!
A half-mile long and now 75 years old, the tree sign spelling “Studebaker” is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The St. Joseph County Parks Department and St. Joseph
County Parks Foundation were recently awarded a Challenge
Grant from the Jeffris Family Foundation for the restoration
and preservation of the historic Studebaker tree sign.
We must raise twice the amount of the grant in order to
secure the funds.
