Behind the Scenes
Celebrating 20 years!
Friends of Frontenac Park is an incorporated, non-profit, charitable organization constituted outside park management. Activities of Friends are coordinated independently by a volunteer board of directors who work closely with active members and park staff.
Friends of Frontenac Park is part of a growing network of independent cooperating associations which believe strongly in wise use and management of Ontario's provincial parks. Cooperating associations provide opportunities for young and old alike to participate in planning, education and interpretation activities organized in cooperation with Ontario Parks staff. Friends organizations allow visitors to take the extra step in "giving back" to the park in time, effort, sharing and concern.
The mission of Friends of Frontenac Park is to undertake activities to enhance appreciation of the ecosystem of Frontenac Provincial Park. This means cooperating with Ontario Parks to suggest and implement park policies. It also means working to create programs and materials to promote public awareness, education, and understanding of the park's natural and cultural heritage.
