What is a Friends Group?

Friends Groups actively participate in the mission to conserve the natural, cultural, scenic, and recreational resources of state parks, as well as to provide a variety of recreational and educational opportunities. Friends Groups promote environmental stewardship of our country's state managed natural areas.  You too can become involved.



You can earn benefits for your volunteer work.  For example, you can earn free passes, free camping, and free cabin use at State Parks.  The ultimate benefit you can earn is the satisfaction of contributing to a great local resource.
