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:
National Public Land Day
Saturday, September 22 at 8:00am
This year Ranger Rawlings and FLHSP are providing the project to maintain and enhance features on Jones Mill Mountain Bike Trail. The expansion of this trail system has been funded by an REI grant. We will need lots of hands to cut brush and correct drainage issues. There will be ample work for all ages. Snacks and hydration will be provided, but you may also want to bring some extra water in a reusable water bottle. Volunteers should bring work gloves and wear long pants as well as closed toed shoes. If you have an extra steel toothed rake or garden hoe bring that along as well. Any participant with bee sting allergies should bring their Epipen.
