The Friends of Fort Harrison State Park is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and preserving the natural resources, park facilities, and educational programs for enrichment of the park. Our organization works closely with the park staff to improve and maintain park trails, gardens, and facilities, provide support for natural resources education, and provide financial and volunteer support for events and programs. Our efforts are funded by membership dues, fundraising activities, corporate sponsorship, and grants.
