The Friends of Jonathan Dickinson State Park, Inc. is a volunteer-based nonprofit Citizen Support Organization (CSO) whose role is one of advocacy for the historical, educational, and ecological enhancement of Jonathan Dickinson State Park. The mission of the Friends is to assist park management in meeting the natural and cultural resource management objectives established for the park.
The Friends of JDSP, like many other CSOs that support Florida State Parks, play a critical role by serving as a source of financial support for the many physical needs the park may have that are not funded by the state. By doing this the Friends of JDSP can provide support for volunteers, educational programs, special events, exhibits, and publications.
By becoming a member of the Friends, you will be contributing to the preservation and enhancement of one of the most significant and diverse natural systems remaining in South Florida. As a member you will also enjoy the benefit of 12 free entries into the park as well as invitations to attend Friends of JDSP special events and discounts on Friends merchandise and at local bike shops.
