The Friends of Cape Florida State Park Inc. is a 501(c)(3) corporation established in 2000 to support the park and to help conserve and enhance the wildlife and other resources of Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park.
The Friends of Cape Florida Inc. has become a repository for contributions from individuals, organizations and businesses. All funds contributed to the friends group by membership or donation, remain at the park and are expended under the authority of the group's board of directors. The board consists of local citizens who love the park.
Donations to the Friends of Cape Florida State Park Inc. are directly used to support the park in its mission to provide quality resource-based recreation through visitor services, interpretive programs and lighthouse exhibits. These generous donations have benefited the park, its visitors and our community in allowing us to help fund a turtle-nesting monitoring program, bird-banding station, interpretive walks, beach cleanup programs, community outreach programs, lighthouse interpretative exhibits, children’s programs and much more.
