Jack London Park Partners (JLPP) was established by Valley of the Moon Natural History Association (VMNHA) to oversee management of the park. JLPP receives no funds from State Parks to subsidize the management and operation of the park and depends entirely on private donations to execute programming, maintain the grounds and administer operations. In 2013 the JLPP Board of Directors crystallized and adopted its Values, Vision and Mission.
VMNHA was established in 1977 to support the interpretive needs of three Sonoma County Parks: Annadel State Park, Jack London State Historic Park (JLSHP) and Sugarloaf Ridge State Historic Park. VMNHA has played a key role in providing monetary support for training, coordination and recognition of volunteers who carry out the essential functions of these parks. VMNHA has also overseen the development of cultural and recreational programs, educational exhibits, signage and historical displays at JLSHP. Among the organization's accomplishments is the award winning restoration of the cottage that Jack London lived in after acquiring Beauty Ranch. In May 2012, VMNHA became the first non-profit to enter into an operating agreement with the State of California to prevent JLSHP from closure.
