Friends Groups

Building a community of volunteers to care for the unique needs of each park & trail. We work to increase the capacity of the many friends groups who volunteer and fundraise on behalf of their local park or trail. Volunteer-based friends groups help care for many of our state's parks and trails. And they are as unique as the places they work for. Small, big, old, new, they run the gamut. Yet, one thing is clear: collectively they have had a tremendous impact on our parks and trail. Explore some of the stories from the groups we list here and you’ll learn about the people who care deeply for parks and trails.
