Welcome to Friends of the Beach & Bay
Friends of the Beach & Bay is the online presence of The Friends of the Emerald Coast State Parks, a Citizen Support Organization (CSO). Our organization is made up of park volunteers and people like you who have a love of our state parks and a desire to support their recreational, environmental and economic value to the community. Members of our organization promote the mission of the Park Service to preserve and protect our parks’ natural, cultural resources and to provide recreational opportunities to area visitors and residents. The Friends of the Emerald Coast State Parks is an official Citizen Support Organization that works on behalf of Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park & Henderson Beach State Park. All membership dues and other funds raised by this organization are put to service for improvements of these State Parks.
