The Friends of Island Beach State Park is a non-profit volunteer organization formed to enhance interpretive, educational, recreational and research programs, and events at Island Beach State Park.
Our mission is to further public appreciation and stewardship of the park. Our members come from a wide range of backgrounds and occupations but have in common a variety of interests in this beautiful State Park.
With volunteer events taking place throughout the entire year, there's always a way for you to get involved! Check out our calendar of events for upcoming dates or just stop by our office during regular business hours.
