Friends of Florida State Forests

The Friends of Florida State Forests is a direct-support charitable organization (DSO) of the Florida Forest Service, dedicated to ensuring Florida’s 37 state forests are available for future generations to enjoy. The program assists in expanding opportunities for recreation, environmental education, and forest management within Florida's state forests. An annual day use pass (to all our forests statewide) can be purchased online for $30, Family membership is only $40, which allows one vehicle (up to 8 persons) entrance into any day use area in Florida state forests. An individual or business can also donate to the Friends of Florida State Forest program, or to a specific state forest, or a specific project or event. So explore today, and visit:
