For years individuals and groups of volunteers have patrolled the trails, removing minor debris, clipping back shrubbery, etc. Consider “adopting” a trail, making sure it is inviting for walking or riding a bicycle.
There are always projects available to volunteers to help out at the park, especially in these days of low staffing due to state budget constraints. Volunteer activities include clearing vegetation from gun battery bunkers, to doing minor repairs, to removing graffiti. From time to time FoFF undertakes larger projects, like the recently completed basketball court or the improvements made to the interpretive trail.
