Throughout the year, many outside events are planned and made even more special when they are at our state forests.  This past fall, families visited many of these events at our forests, and “Friends of Florida State Forests” fundraisers where included to help raise additional dollars to expand outdoor recreation, reforestation, and help meet other needs of our forests.
