Friends Of Lovers Key, Inc.

The Friends of Lovers Key (FOLKs) are the Citizen Support Organization for Lovers Key State Park.  We operate as a nonprofit 5013(c)3 corporation that supports everything Lovers Key.  Our mission is to Protect, Preserve, and Support Lovers Key State Park.

In 1996, the Lovers Key Recreational Area merged with Carl E. Johnson County Park, and Lovers Key State Park was born. Friends of Lovers Key incorporated during this same time as a non-profit organization.

Friends of Lovers Key (FOLK) is a 501(c)3, state sanctioned, citizen support organization (CSO) that directly supports the mission of Lovers Key State Park (LKSP). We are authorized to raise funds in support of Lovers Key State Park's objectives through donations, grants and merchandise sales.

Historically, FOLK provides funds to cover budget shortfalls in Lovers Key State Park for items such as:

Fencing and signs during turtle and bird nesting seasons.

Cleanup and repairs after storms such as Hurricane Irma.

We provide needed extras such as new mowers, tram cars and WIFI.

Boosts LKSP's ability to offer community enrichment programs by recruiting a dedicated staff, and members that provide thousands of volunteer hours annually for basic park services and enrichment programs.
