Join Friends of Emerald Coast State Parks Today!

Friends of Emerald Coast State Parks exists to champion our region’s State Parks, and we need friends like you.

The Friends of Emerald Coast State Parks is a 501(c)3 non profit organization whose goal is to improve and enhance guest experience at both Henderson Beach State Park and Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park through services, improved facilities and interpretive programs. All funds generated through donations, membership dues, and services offered at the park go directly to support both parks. These funds are used to make park improvements and repairs such as building projects, educational programs, equipment purchases, and interpretive displays to create an amazing experience for residents and visitors alike. 

Our community of members are integral to our success on behalf of Rocky Bayou and Henderson Beach State Parks’ diverse coastal wildlife and habitats. When you join or renew your Friends of Emerald Coast State Parks membership, you ensure that vital preservation work can continue. All membership contributions are tax deductible. Thank you for your interest in possibly becoming a member of our growing organization.

Members receive a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Park passes for more fun in the sun.
  • A subscription to Turtle Tracks
  • Complimentary kayak, bicycle and beach chair rentals.
  • Access to fantastic members-only events, and more!

Your contribution will help build the financial foundation of our Friends group and allow us to support park projects and special events for years to come.
