We are Friends of St. Andrews State Park We are nature lovers, families, artists, beach walkers, photographers, retirees, bird watchers, writers, who volunteer our time to help support the park.
The Friends of St. Andrews State Park, Inc. is a nonprofit citizen support organization formed in support of St. Andrews State Park. The Friends members work to support the Florida State Parks mission “to provide resource-based recreation while preserving, interpreting and restoring natural and cultural resources.” We have been actively assisting the Florida Park Service with this mission since 1991.

We invite you to design your own membership. Some busy members choose to express their support through annual dues only.Others devote many volunteer hours to the park, and find time for socializing, relaxing, and enjoying the result of their labors while building new friendships within the Friends. Volunteers are needed for our special events, recycling, work projects, meeting and greeting, and more. Special event volunteers can serve on the planning committees, run errands, assist with preparation and set-up, or work the event. The Friends Board of Directors meet monthly and all Friends are invited to sit in and observe those meetings. General member meetings consist of one Annual Meeting and other meetings as needed. Meetings usually include interesting speakers and light refreshments. Special member and volunteer events include a Christmas party in December and a Chili Cookout usually held in March. Member Benefits: Members enter the park free of charge for all meetings and events and work projects. In addition, each member is allowed free entry to the park 12 times during the membership year.
