Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park
Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park is Florida’s largest park. It’s also a much too-well-kept secret! So, please spread the word about this incredible place. Check out the park facts and suggestions below, and visit the park website, at Fakahatchee Strand. Join the vital Citizens Support Organization, “Friends of Fakahatchee, Inc.” Members of “Friends” will be among those volunteering in support of runners on race day. They also lead public tours and programs in the park, including at the park boardwalk. Be sure to thank the volunteers and ask how you can help support and preserve this Florida natural treasure.

“Friends of Fakahatchee”
Did you know that donations made directly to the Park do not stay with Fakahatchee? In Florida, such donations are forwarded to the state and used in a general fund in support of all state parks. However, all dollars donated to the Citizens Support Organization, “Friends of Fakahatchee, Inc.”, stay here in direct support of the Fakahatchee and its programs. My family has joined the “Friends” and strongly urges you to do the same. Individual membership is $20; family membership is $30. (Other membership levels are available, too.) Read all about “Friends of Fakahatchee” and their terrific work at the organization website, orchidswamp.org.
