Friends of Saltwater State Park

We promote marine and watershed stewardship, habitat restoration, and conservation through education, guidance, fund-raising, and environmental monitoring. We promote safety for patrons and the importance of enhancing land, creek, and marine environments. It's all connected, and we are all connected. Our activities are environmentally friendly and culturally inclusive for all people. Our mission is to support Saltwater State Park for the betterment of patrons and the environment.


Who We Are

The Friends group was developed by park patrons that care about nature and wanted to do more for the park. Nature is our panacea, we listen and blend with: nature and she refreshes us. We also listen and notice nature’s issues lack of salmon, ivy smothering out native plants, shells and seas stars missing from the benches and abandoned crab pots in the underwater park. Luckily, our awesome volunteer leaders with the help of over 100 volunteers are working on projects to preserve and improve the park.
