The Massachusetts Forest and Park Friends Network is a grassroots organization of volunteer Friends groups networking for greater advocacy, better protection and enhancement of Massachusetts’ forests, parks, beaches and trails. The Friends Network facilitates communication between Friends groups, all volunteers to state parklands and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR).

Parklands thrive under the special care that Friends groups provide. If you are not yet a Friend, please join or start a Friends Group today and we’ll help you get started!

Registration is now open for the Friends 12th Annual Gathering!
