Why should I donate to the FLDSP and not just directly to the park?
Funds that go to the FLDSP stay in a reserve account set up specifically for the Lost Dutchman State Park; other donations do not, they are spread among the parks or used at the state’s discretion. Also, purchases through the FLDSP are not subject to the state’s procurement procedures… the park needs it, we get/do it for them.
YOU CAN HELP MAKE THE PARK’S WISH LIST COME TRUE
- Dog friendly drinking fountains, what’s not to love, right, hiking, biking, just strolling through the park, enjoying the views and (Wo)man’s best friend. They want this one, help them get it: http://www.dog-on-it-parks.com
- Thirty picnic tables need to be resurfaced or replaced. You can help get one or all 30 done by funding or donating services.
- The park needs a utility vehicle and trailer for the maintenance and improvement work that goes on every day. The park covers 292 acres, there are 134 campsites, 3 large day use/group areas, and about 25 miles of trail serviced by only 3 full-time rangers and a handful of part-time/volunteer staff. They’ve picked out the E-Z-GO – Terrain 250, gas powered… let’s get it for them, donations of any amount accepted for this one.
- Do you know the important role that golf carts play in the management and upkeep of our park? The rangers need two, new or used in good condition, to help transport themselves and often park guests in need. With 292 acres to cover, these mighty little carts help the rangers do a lot. Can you donate one, or can you help us raise the funds needed to purchase them (about $6k is needed for 2 carts)?
