About the Friends
Dudley Farm is a link to our rural past when self-sufficiency was the order of the day.
Friends of Dudley Farm work with the park staff to support the preservation, interpretation, and operation of this historic state park. Our activities range from sponsoring special events, collections of dues and contributions, to providing fund raising and programs/gatherings for volunteers.
Citizen Support Organization
The Friends of Dudley Farm is a not for profit 501(c)(3) corporation. Currently, there are more than 80 Citizen Support Organizations (CSO) assisting Florida State Parks. The role of these groups is to help ensure that our natural, cultural, and historical resources are protected for future generations. Support is provided by volunteering, educating visitors, hosting activities, and raising funds for needed park projects.
