Welcome to the Friends of Purtis Creek website.
We hope you enjoy your visit here and will consider joining us at the park!
Our goal is to better the park through improvement projects and event hosting. In order to accomplish this we raise funds through a variety of programs and team with the park management to best use these funds in the park. All members and officers in the Friends group are volunteers with no paid positions.
Membership is open to individuals, students, families, businesses/others who
have interest in Purtis Creek State Park. The rates for them are as follows:
General Membership Meetings will be held on the second Saturday every month except November. The last meeting of the year in December will be set according to everyone's schedules due to the Christmas Holidays. Special Meetings may be called by the Board of Directors with notice to everyone at least 3 days prior to said change.
Interpretive Programs throughout the year include: Junior Angler, Junior Ranger, Nature Hikes, Canoe/Kayak Tours, Campfire Basics/Safety, Birding, Geocaching, Stargazing and many many more.
The Friends of Purtis Creek also assist the Park with Hiking/Biking Trail Maintenance, Planning and Development, Aquatic Vegetation Programs, Park Host Positions, and much much more!
