"Friends" groups are independent non-profit organizations dedicated to assisting a particular park.
These groups help with special events and programs, park maintenance, planning, fundraising,
staffing nature centers and advocating for the park.
There are currently 14 friends groups actively supporting Delaware State Parks.
Friends of Cape Henlopen State Park is the "friends" group working to support the Cape Henlopen park.
We have a wide variety of programs...many of which are unique due to the geographical location,
and environmental diversity of the Cape Henlopen area.
