5th Annual Statewide Friends and Alliances Workshop has been cancelled.
As we enter the holiday season, the entire Board of Friends of Florida State Parks and I would like to extend our deepest thanks for all your tremendous support over the past year.
Florida’s award-winning 171 State Parks and Trails are recognized nationwide as the jewels in the U.S. crown. They cover almost 800,000 acres and include 100 miles of beaches and more than 1,600 miles of multi-use trails. They offer a wealth of outdoor activities as well as an opportunity to learn about Florida’s wonderful wildlife and fascinating history.
Our parks attract more than 27 million visitors every year and they benefit local economies by more than $2 billion statewide.
They are so successful because of the dedication of the park staff and the thousands of volunteers who work alongside them – and because of your generous support.
Your support from membership and donations allows us to continue to make the parks ever better. Most of the projects we fund would not otherwise happen because of the many other demands on the parks’ budgets. We are often able to provide the funding and the manpower to get things done and with your help we can do so much more.
Please consider Friends of Florida State Parks when you consider your end of year giving. Your donation is, of course, tax deductible and will enable us to build more boardwalks, provide interpretive displays, organize educational and environmental programs and host local school visits and so much more.
Have a wonderful holiday season and a healthy and happy New Year.
Thank you for your continued support.
