Florida's state parks have benefited from the efforts of citizen support organizations, the Florida Greenway and Trails Foundation, and the Florida State Parks Foundation. These organizations and park volunteers provide support by volunteering, educating visitors, hosting events, and raising funds for specific park projects.
In addition, companies, businesses, and organizations work with Florida State Parks by providing days of volunteer service. These companies have helped with projects such as painting, debris removal, kiosk construction, and native vegetation restoration projects.
