Council of Friends

The Councils of Friends are groups of volunteers, from the communities surrounding the County Parks, who have been appointed by County Council to serve two year terms as advisors.  They serve as the eyes and ears of County Council to address the general needs of their park and work to preserve, protect and improve the natural environment.

All groups meet at the call of the chair.
