State Park Friends Groups and Support Organizations

Many state parks have organized groups of interested citizens that actively support their park. These nonprofit organizations, sometimes referred to as "friends groups," work on behalf of park sites to assist with daily programs, special events, fundraising and public education. These groups serve as important links to local communities and park user groups, as well.

The partnerships between the agency and support organizations provide a mechanism to utilize the skills, contacts and resources of private citizens and businesses to enhance state parks and to provide services that may not otherwise be available. Friends groups continue to be organized around the state in support of our Texas State Parks.
