Friends

What is a Friends Group?

Friends are people like you who volunteer their time, services and support to enhance our state parks and forests. Friends groups form for a variety of reasons but all understand the value of their state park or historic site and share a common goal to make that park or site the best in the Commonwealth.

What do Friends Groups do?

As champions of parks, Friends groups frequently engage area communities in the park and provide financial support and volunteer time in support of park priorities. Every year they provide tens of thousands of volunteer hours working to improve and enhance state parks and historic site. Friends groups connect people to the natural wonders of Kentucky while enhancing the role of public lands in local communities.

The Foundation is a proud partner of Friends Groups across the state. We seek to serve as a catalyst, resource, and voice for Friends Groups, to protect and enhance Kentucky’s State Parks  for present and future generations.
