Friends of Silver Springs State Park

We are a volunteer non-profit 501c3 citizen support group, Friends of the Silver Springs State Park in Marion County, Florida. We are a group of volunteers who hold events, usually in the State Park, to raise funds and park awareness, which, in turn, helps to assist the park in accomplishing its goal which is to provide resource-based recreation while preserving, interpreting and restoring natural and cultural resources. We also work with the Park staff on various projects within the park.
