|About Friends Groups|
The Friends of Beltzville State Park (FOBSP) friends group was founded in July 2015 with six or eight like minded people. Friends groups in general provide volunteers at parks or forests and work closely with the park staff to contribute to the conservation and preservation of the park an it's resources. Friends are young and not so young, all with different background but all are people like you who love the outdoors and are willing to help conserve and preserve by volunteering their time, talents, services and support to enhance our state parks and forests. Friends groups form for a variety of reasons, but all understand the value of their particular state park or forest and share a commonality to make that park of forest the best in the commonwealth.
Every year friends from all over the state provide tens of thousands of volunteer hours to improve and enhance state parks and forests. Friends group connect people to the natural places of Pennsylvania and plug them into outlets for their energy and enthusiasm while enhancing the role of public lands and local communities.
