OUR PROJECTS

The Friends provide financial support to the park in order to support projects critical to maintaining a healthy park ecosystem. Such project investments include:

The Friends provide assistance to the park's sea turtle program through the purchase of equipment like all-terrain beach vehicles and tablets to make data collection easier. 

SEA TURTLE PROGRAM

We fund the printing and materials needed to install educational panels throughout the seven parks. 

INTERPRETIVE PANELS

The Friends provide funding for equipment like a wood chipper that has been used to clear several miles of overgrown trails, re-opening trails to the public once again.

PARK EQUIPMENT

We have provided funding for University of North Florida professor Keith Ashley and his team of students to conduct archaeological surveys on Big Talbot Island
