Because people & nature need each other…

Founded in 1989, the mission of Friends of Buford Park & Mt. Pisgah is to protect and enhance native ecosystems and compatible recreation in the Mt. Pisgah area.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization working to conserve the Mt. Pisgah area’s incredible botanical, wildlife and recreational values. The Friends mobilize funding, scientific expertise and volunteer resources to improve the botanical, fish, wildlife and recreational values throughout the greater Mt. Pisgah area.  

Annual Volunteer Appreciation Party: Thursday Sept. 14, 2017, 5-7 pm

Volunteers are our foundation! Last year, we recorded over 13,000 hours of volunteer time from more than 500 volunteers! To honor their hard work and dedication, we are hosting a Volunteer Appreciation Party on Thursday, Sept. 14 from 5-7 pm at our Native Plant Nursery. All current volunteers are invited to join us!

Please RSVP here for this event!

Thinking about volunteering with us? Aspiring volunteers are welcome too! Come check out our nursery, meet our staff and volunteers, and find out how you can put your passions and talents to work with the Friends. We have volunteers at every level of our organization, from data entry to trail building, from event support to habitat restoration–volunteers truly help us power our programs.
