Friends of Frontenac Park is an incorporated, non-profit, charitable organization constituted outside park management. Activities of Friends are coordinated independently by a volunteer board of directors, elected annually, which meets as necessary and works closely with active members and park staff. Because the Friends initiatives are organized on a project-by-project basis, activities undertaken by the group are as diverse as membership interests in any given year.
Friends of Frontenac Park is part of a growing network of independent cooperating associations which believe strongly in wise use and management of Ontario's provincial parks. Cooperating associations provide opportunities for young and old alike to participate in planning, education and interpretation activities organized in cooperation with Ontario Parks staff. Friends organizations allow visitors to take the extra step in "give back" the park in time, effort, sharing and concern.
The mission of Friends of Frontenac Park is to undertake activities to enhance appreciation of the ecosystem of Frontenac Provincial Park. This means cooperating with Ontario Parks to suggest and implement park policies. It also means working to create programs and materials to promote public awareness, education, and understanding of the park's natural and cultural heritage.
Frontenac Provincial Park protects a portion of the rugged Frontenac Axis, a finger of the ancient Canadian Shield that reaches down through eastern Ontario into New York State. It is a place of blue lakes, rocky shores and endless opportunities for hiking, canoeing, skiing and exploring the natural world. Like all park land, however, Frontenac's 70 square kilometres need to be managed carefully. This is where you, as a Friend of Frontenac park can help. Working cooperatively with Ontario Parks, it is the goal of the Friends to undertake activities to enhance public awareness, appreciation and sensitive management of the ecosystem of Frontenac Park. Becoming a Friend is a chance for you to give back to the land and to make a difference in the drive to protect what's left of the natural world.
