FSM is one of approximately 30 Friends Groups supporting the various State Parks in beautiful North Carolina. We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities with our many ongoing projects in both Pilot Mountain and Hanging Rock State Parks.
We love and appreciate our volunteers and are proud to report we donated over 2000 TWO THOUSAND VOLUNTEER Hours to both your parks in the 2021/2022 fiscal years. We also love monetary donations! We allocated and spent $20,000 TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS to each park in the 2022 fiscal year for much needed items.
We have a myriad of Volunteer opportunities ranging from trail work to computer help. We have an award-winning Trail Crew that clears and maintains trails in both Parks. One can help our fun group by participating in Adopt a Highway, trail maintenance, working our booth at various outdoor events. Also, volunteering with our annual fund raiser – High 5 at Hanging Rock, selling tee- shirts, helping with mailings, taking photographs, planting trees, or pretty much you name it- We have an opportunity for you.
We also have fun with quarterly member outings like butterfly and bird walks and our popular kayak trip in the summer. We also offer 2-3 guided hikes yearly to “off the beaten track” locations within the parks for members.
Join us to support our Parks, volunteer with super folks, and have a great time with great people!!
