The purpose of Friends of Long Hunter State Park is to help protect and improve the park environment for those who use it; and to support the park staff in its preservation and educational efforts.
We encourage you to join us in our efforts to assist Long Hunter State Park by becoming a member of our organization.
We offer many events throughout the year. We also have a full events calendar. The following is a short list of upcoming events:
Friday, August 22 at 7:30pm
You’ve seen beauties such as the Luna Moth, but have you ever spotted an Underwing or Sphinx Moth? These mysterious, winged creatures are often elusive but awe inspiring. Come out to see Ranger Froeschauer and Ranger Davis bait these nocturnal wonders with sweetened over-ripe fruit. We’ll be at the Area 2 shelter beside Couchville Lake.
Junior Ranger Camp #3
Saturday, August 23 at 1:00pm
It’s our last meeting before induction! We’ll be wrapping up our training in order for you to be a certified Junior Ranger. All information about today’s meeting should be in your hands; however, feel free to contact Ranger Davis with any questions.
Junior Ranger Induction & Party
Saturday, August 23 at 5:00pm
You’ve done it; this is what you’ve been working for! Finally, you’re a Junior Ranger and it’s time to celebrate! The ceremony will be held in the AV room in the main office, and the congratulations get-together that follows will be in Group Camp 1. We are so proud to have such a respectable group of young Junior Rangers!
A lot of support we receive comes from not only members within the Friends group, but also sponsors of local businesses throughout the community who have a love for Long Hunter State Park. If you are interested in sponsoring us, please visit our sponsor page.
