The Friends of Big Foot Beach State Park was founded in the fall of 2005 by local citizens who saw an opportunity to be stewards of a local natural treasure. The Friends help the park through fundraising efforts, grants, and volunteer work days.
The third Saturday of every month from 9am-11am through September are Volunteer Work Days at the park. The Friends help to keep the park clean, and continue efforts to remove invasive species.
Planning is also underway for two major fund raising events - Big Foot Trail Run and the Big Foot Triathlon. the events are held on the last two weekend days of June. Information is found at http://www.bigfoottriathlon.com/ .
