Park friendly folks
Another organization that might be interested in the welfare of our parks is the Friends of Sarasota County Parks. This is from their web site:
The Friends of Sarasota County Parks is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of parks in Sarasota County. Our mission is to build a partnership between the Sarasota County Parks and Recreation system and the community; coordinate and bridge efforts with other like minded community organizations; to advocate for quality services and facilities for all the people of Sarasota County; to encourage the donation of gifts, endowments and bequests for the Sarasota County recreation/preservation system, and to be a friend at every opportunity.
Among other things, the site offers virtual tours of several area parks.
