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.
