Find a way to help!

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 Friends Groups of the Texas State Parks are a very important part of the Texans for State Parks organization. Without these groups, the organization and parks would be in dire need.
