Harkness Memorial State Park, an historic landmark property, is greatly enhanced by the labor and expertise of our many Friends of Harkness volunteers. State staff levels at the Park are inadequate to meet Harkness’s complex set of needs. For close to thirty years, the Friends have supplemented staff efforts to protect, promote and preserve this special place and could use many more volunteers to better park visitor experience and to educate the public about the compelling history of the former Eolia estate. Your help will make such a difference! Please consider volunteering for one of our many committees.
