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.

Planned Events

Event postponed until after the pandemic when the Park is reopened.

Friends of Fort Flagler board members Tim and Alice Tibbals have been working with park Ranger Miles Carignan regarding the campground clean up scheduled for Saturday March 28th, 9 am to 12 noon.  We have devised a plan to accomplish this task with appropriate social distance being asked of all of us!  There are 47 camp sites so please consider coming out to this beautiful park to assist us in making the upper campground ready for opening in April.  Here’s the scoop:

1. Bring your own rakes, gloves and water for hydration!  
2. Raking a campsite is definitely more than six feet away from others!  
3. All debris is raked off into the brush to recycle in the natural environment.  
    Therefore we won’t be raking into piles for picking up.
4. When you arrive at the lower campground loop, you will be asked/assigned to 
rake a specific site or sites as you are able.  Your name will be added to the volunteer list for the day as well.  This is a park requirement for insurance reason.

We are pleased this is one event we can come together, albeit from a safe distance, and work together for the benefit of the park.  We hope to see as many of you as can come to assist us in this task!

Be well, stay safe and as they say these days……..help flatten the curve!
