OUR MISSION STATEMENT

Promote the use, preservation and enhancement of Weeki Wachee Springs State Park

THANK YOU for your interest in The Friends of Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, Inc. (Friends). We are excited to have this opportunity to introduce you to our Citizen Support Organization (CSO).

The Friends CSO was organized in 2009 by a group of passionate volunteers who wanted to protect and help sustain the Environment and History of WEEKI WACHEE SPRINGS. As a CSO we are a not -for- profit 501(c)(3) organization with oversight by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Recreation and Parks.

We are recognized as the leading advocate for the Weeki Wachee Springs. Through memberships, fundraising events, programs, grants, camps, merchandise sales and donations, we provide the funds to honor the requests from the Park Staff for equipment, repairs, landscaping, educational outreach, and community recreation. 100% of the money generated goes directly to benefit the Park. We also adopt and fund projects of our choosing that enhance and maintain the Park’s history and enjoyment of our visitors.

Please check out all the pages above to learn more about our amazing Park and the Activities going on daily not only by Weeki Wachee Springs State Park but also by the Friends of Weeki Wachee.
