Here’s a video by the Friends of CT State Parks (FCSP) Board to thank State Park workers for keeping parks open and well-maintained for all of us.

With more people using the parks as a way to get some fresh air, these employees have been working harder than ever to keep parks safe and open.

The Friends of Connecticut State Parks, Inc. (FCSP) is an all-volunteer organization, which was formed in 1994 in partnership with the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, DEEP, and the Connecticut Forest & Park Association, CFPA, by members of seven nonprofit advocacy groups, each dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of a single State park in Connecticut.

The FCSP mission is to support the Connecticut state parks, forests and conservation areas through education, advocacy, and public awareness, to protect and preserve the great legacy of Connecticut natural resources and historical treasures.
