Friends Groups of

Mississippi State Parks

Working with all of the Friends groups across the state is a great pleasure and they are one of our greatest assets.  These dedicated members of their communities are the backbone of the volunteers that help keep our parks going.  They work with their local Parks Managers, doing everything from clean up projects to building new attractions for their parks.

A lot of the time, these groups spend their own money to make things happen but, that’s where the Mississippi State Parks Foundation comes in. It’s our plan to help the Friends groups fund their projects and let the State fund the major infrastructure projects. With our low overhead, the majority of all donations go straight to making improvements in the Mississippi State Parks. Working with these enthusiastic volunteers makes our donations go farther.

One of our goals is to have a Friends group at every state park. Will you be a part of helping to restore our state parks to their glory days ? Contact your local Parks Manager and tell them you want to be part of their Friends group. If they don’t have a Friends group, reach out to us and we can help make that happen.

Let’s start building those lifetime memories together…

Special Thanks To Our Founding Corporate Donors
