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 Event Calendar. The following is a short list of upcoming events:
Nature Tots: Sowing Seeds
Monday, February 18 at 10:00am
Join Ranger Blackwell as we introduce young naturalists to various seeds of the forest. This class is focused at kids ages 2 - 5. Second in a series of programs geared toward children of preschool ages. All children must be accompanied by an adult/guardian at all times.
The class will be an indoor activity and will feature our current Reading Ranger storybook "Miss Maple's Seeds". The children will be planting seeds of their own to take home. The cost of the program is $5 per child participant.
