I belong to the Massachusetts Forest and Park Friends Network, a group comprised of members of forest and park friends groups from around the state of MA. The Friends Network would like to see a friends group for every DCR forest and park in the state. The Network will help you start a friends group and will support friends groups already established. Visit www.networkingfriends.net. Forming a friends group is easy and very rewarding, especially when you know you've made a difference in the forest near you.
