Over the years, Friends of Barr Lake has contributed funds and manpower for various projects at Barr Lake State Park. Many of the projects they work on are not readily seen by the public…things like helping to maintain trails, and keeping the Nature Center clean and beautiful. Friends also works with local artists to sell their goods, contributing a portion to the Friends.
Friends helped to renovate the Bald Eagle boardwalk and gazebo in 2013 after storms blew trees over the structures, tearing out part of the boardwalk.
We have contributed to the construction of the new ADA accessible fishing pier near the boat ramp. This is set to open in the Spring/Summer of 2019.
None of the Friends board members receive compensation of any kind. All donations raised go directly to support the education, recreation, and conservation programs at Barr Lake State Park. Friends supplies snacks, crafts, and manpower for most events. They are involved in almost every happening at the park.
This is truly a great organization to be a part of. Consider joining our Friends family and help us help Barr Lake State Park.
