Friends of Birch State Park, Inc.
Friends’ vision is to “Bring Birch Back!” to being one of the best state parks in Florida. Our mission is to preserve, conserve, enhance and promote Hugh Taylor Birch State Park with the help of the community. We have a 35-member board led by Chair Jim Ellis who is the catalyst for projects to add a public floating boat dock, raise and restore the 1.2 -mile seawall, widen the loop road for safety purposes and add Marti’s Meditation Garden. Volunteer opportunities include clearing out non-indigenous plant life and driving trams.
