WHO WE ARE: Friends of Galveston Island State Park is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in February, 2001 by a group of concerned park neighbors. (About half of the state parks in Texas have similar groups formed to assist and promote the mission and activities of their park.)
OUR MISSION: Friends are volunteers who help with preservation and enhancement of the park’s natural environment. Our mission is to provide enriching experiences and educational programs, improve the Park’s facilities, protect its wildlife, and preserve and restore its fragile environment.
