The Friends of Wyalusing welcome you to Wyalusing State park. I hope you find it a source of endless fascination as we have. We are a private non-profit charitable organization. Our goal is to support and enhance your experience here at wonderful Wyalusing. As you explore the park, you will see nature trails, kiosks, guided hikes and nature programs that were made possible by the efforts of our organization.

These are tough times for state budgets and so our parks rely more and more on volunteer organizations like ours to provide funding for things that might otherwise not be possible. We work with the park staff to seek out grants and outside sources of funding to stretch our impact and make your park experience, and that of future generations, even better. Last year we were voted the “most successful local friends group” by the Friends of Wisconsin State Parks but we don’t plan on resting. We have big plans for the future and with your help we can do even more.

Many of us think that “someday” we will step up and make a difference for the things we care about. There is no better “someday” than today. The Friends of Wyalusing State Park need your help. You don’t need a lot of time or money, you don’t need to live close to the park, you just need to care enough to get involved.

There are a number of ways to help.

First, consider becoming a friend. Information on membership is available at the park office, stop by and pick up a brochure.

Second, consider the Friends of Wyalusing State Park in your charitable giving. We have set up an endowment fund that will provide support and programming into the future and donations are tax deductible as allowed. Memorials and estate donations are a great way to make an impact that lives on.

Third, share your time and talents. We need people who will get involved with the group. Everyone has
something to share. For our more remote friends this can be done through our web presence at wyalusing.org or the blog page at friendsofwyalusingstatepark.blogspot.com. Sign in and let us know what you think.

 Fourth, stop by the concession stand located near the Wisconsin Ridge Campground. Proceeds from these sales go to the Friends of Wyalusing.

Wyalusing State Park is indeed a rare gem. You can help provide the polish that makes that gem shine. As president of The Friends of Wyalusing State Park I welcome you to join us and be a friend. Enjoy your time here and maybe I’ll see you there at one of our many programs and events.
