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:
