The Conservancy

Shelby Farms Park Conservancy

Shelby Farms Park Conservancy (SFPC or the Conservancy) is the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that manages and operates Shelby Farms Park and Shelby Farms Greenline through a private-public partnership with Shelby County Government. That means the land that comprises Shelby Farms Park and Greenline is publicly owned, and SFPC is responsible for daily management, fundraising to meet operations budget needs, setting the vision for the Park’s future and stewarding its natural resources.

Shelby Farms Park Conservancy is committed to providing inclusive and equitable spaces for each and every visitor.

Our Vision

We are giving rise to a celebrated 21st century park that defines and shapes a great city.

Our Mission

To manage, operate, restore and improve Shelby Farms Park in partnership with and for the public

With the support of our volunteers, donors and partners, we are doing just that!  Each year, SFPC privately raises funding for the Park and the Greenline through general donations, corporate and foundation support.
