Recreate Responsibly

COVID-19 IMPACT What's Open And What's Not! And How to Enjoy Yourself Responsibly in the Park!

Due to the current and very fluid situation with COVID-19 the Friends are working to make sure our staff, volunteers, members, partners, visitors and community members are not put at undue risk. Although many activities are being postponed or adjusted, our commitment to our park and our mission cannot falter. We will continue to maintain our trails, clean our beaches, and maintain re-vegetation efforts. We will continue to stand strong on the frontlines, advocating for the protection and preservation of our park's natural and cultural resources. And, we will once again, like after the hurricanes, and throughout the government shutdown, position ourselves to respond to the park's needs with urgency, professionalism, and foresight. Our community has shown its resilience time and again. We expect this will be no different.

The Friend’s staff is working from home as much as possible. Please contact us at or (340) 779-4940 if we can help or answer questions.

Follow us on social media to keep up to date on the ongoing work we are doing as well as any changes to events.
