The mission of the Hillsborough River State Park Preservation Society, Inc., is to enhance and perpetuate the Hillsborough River State Park and the Fort Foster State Historic Site.
CSO membership = 12 free entry days to the Park (TBD by CSO)
100 volunteer hours = free park entry for the volunteer for 1 year
500 volunteer hours = free annual family park pass to all Florida State Parks (some exceptions apply)
Volunteers can do many things—greet visitors, conduct tours, help rangers remove exotic plants or maintain the natural beauty of pine flatwoods and hiking trails. The Florida Park Service, due to increased demands on park staff, works closely with volunteers to assist with the sometimes-daunting task of keeping the parks running and providing visitor services.
Volunteers are essential to the operation of Fort Foster Historic Site, as well as the never-ending maintenance of our historic Civilian Conservation Corp CCC buildings. “There is a lot to do right now. It is a great time for community service,” said CSO President Walt Williams.
