Friends of Carter Caves
The Friends of Carter Caves, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation dedicated to the enrichment and conservation of Carter Caves State Resort Park through education, collaboration, leadership, and service.
What We Do
We LOVE Carter Caves State Resort Park and coordinate fundraising efforts and volunteer opportunities. Funds are used for park projects that are not covered by the state park system. Friends members also contribute volunteer hours for events and trail maintenance.
Our non-profit, 501 (c)(3) status, also enables us to seek out and apply for grants to enhance the park.
A few examples of our volunteer activities:
Sponsor Wildflower Weekends/Interpretive programs
Support the Carter Caves Trail Crew
Purchase clothing & materials for Interpretive programs
Purchase flowers & landscaping materials
Purchase equipment for Recreational programs
Assist with Camper Appreciation Weekend, Winter Adventure Weekend, Pioneer Life Week, Cave-In Movies, and much more!
