The Friends of LaGrange County Parks will support the mission of LaGrange County Parks through

  • fundraising and receiving contributions in support of LaGrange County Parks,
  • promoting the activities of the Friends and of the Parks.

The Friends of LaGrange County Parks was organized in 2011 to support the LaGrange County Parks and Recreation Department through financial assistance and volunteer projects. We have applied for grants to enhance our parks, most notably the $250,000 grant for the restoration of Duff Fen. We participate in various activities and programs such as Doggy Dash, Ribs at Rogers, and the Maple Syrup Festival. We sponsor fundraising activities such as the annual Sap Run held the Saturday before Maple Syrup Days.

Our Board meets on a monthly basis and we have an annual meeting for the election of new Board members, but attendance is not required. Our funds are held by the LaGrange County Community Foundation, earmarked for parks development and programming.
