Friends of Fort Flagler State Park (FoFF)

The Friends of Fort Flagler group was formed in 1999 from a nucleus of people involved in the Centennial celebration at Fort Flagler State Park. Preparations for the celebration identified a wealth of undeveloped and unrealized potential as well as the need for major restoration and preservation.

The first Friends meeting had 15 attendees and a million opinions and suggestions. We all saw numerous projects needing immediate attention and we each had a plan to resolve them. How it would all be accomplished was a point for much discussion but we all had a common objective. Our mission statement wrote itself:

To restore, preserve, and protect the natural and historical resources of Fort Flagler, as well as to provide assistance and support for the park staff.
