Friends Groups

Friends groups, also referred to as Citizen Support Organizations (CSO), provide support to individual parks by volunteering, educating visitors, hosting events and raising funds for specific park projects. There are currently 86 friends groups supporting state parks throughout Florida. These groups and the citizens that pledge their time to them play a vital role supporting Florida's state parks, ensuring that our natural, cultural and historical resources are protected for future generations.

Friends of Florida State Parks is a statewide citizen support organization whose dedicated members and volunteers help support the entire Florida State Park system by preserving, protecting and ensuring accessibility to state parks, educating visitors about the value of state parks, encouraging community engagement and active use of state parks, and providing financial support to supplement state funding. For more information, visit the Friends of Florida State Parks
 
Florida Greenways and Trails Foundation is a statewide citizen support organization whose mission is to help create a statewide system of trails and greenways to advance health, recreation, transportation and tourism. For more information, visit Florida Greenways and Trails Foundation
