Hillsborough River State Park Preservation Society
Hillsborough River State Park Preservation Society was established to support the needs of Hillsborough River State Park and Fort Foster Historic Site. It is a volunteer Citizen Support Organization (CSO), which was founded in 1993.
Like other state parks in Florida, Hillsborough River State Park and the Fort Foster Historic Site have programs and physical needs which go beyond the state’s ability to provide funding and support. This is where the Preservation Society comes in. By generating additional support for the park in the form of fundraising, supplemental staffing, equipment, etc., we are aiding the park in fulfillment of it’s mission.
Our goal is simple. To support our park in the fulfillment of its mission. This mission, as set forth by the Florida Park Service, is to provide resource based recreation while preserving, interpreting and restoring natural, cultural and historical resources.
The park currently provides resource based recreation through exhibits, educational programs and activities, special events, as well as, many other valuable visitor services.
