The Friends of Clifty Falls State Park supports Clifty Falls State Park. We began meeting and getting organized and elected our first officers in 2021. We became an official non-profit "501(c)(3)" in September 2021.
We are operate for the benefit of Clifty Falls State Park and its patrons. We:
help conserve and enhance the natural resources and facilities of the park;
help educate the public about the parks and park related issues, and encourage park visitation;
assist at natural and cultural interpretive activities such as hikes, crafts projects or by answering visitor questions - helping to connect visitors with park resources;
help the Park staff reach goals through personal assistance and fund-raising;
and, importantly, benefit the lives of our members through this unique service.
See the "Activities and Events" page for meeting information the "Be A Friend" page for how to join.
