Friends Groups at Tennessee State Parks
In 1993, Tennessee passed legislation authorizing private, non-profit groups to organize for maintaining and enhancing the purposes, programs and functions of the state park system. These groups, more commonly known as Friends, are concerned citizens who have banded together to assist in protecting, preserving and promoting the beauty and the splendor of their favorite state park. They give selflessly of their time, talents and energy to help ensure the parks integrity is intact for future generations to enjoy. To find out more about a group or how to get involved with one, check out the Friends Web page or contact the Tennessee State Parks volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 615-532-5249.
