Become a Friend of Hunting Island today!

Some provide generous endowments, some volunteer their time or expertise, and some simply join as annual members. Whatever your capacity, you support the beauty and education provided by a well-maintained Hunting Island with a thriving natural habitat.

Your membership donations further our mission of supporting Hunting Island State Park in the conservation, education, and interpretation of the natural and cultural resources of the island. All your membership fees work for Hunting Island State Park. In the calendar year 2024, your dollars will be supporting the preservation and restoration of the 1875 Fresnel Lens at the Hunting Island Lighthouse! This will be an exciting project to bring this historic artifact back to its original condition.  A new location on the Lighthouse complex will be allocated to house the lens, as an exhibit with ADA accessibility.

Membership for 2024 is now available, and if you purchase or renew this year, you will then enjoy 14 months of Hunting Island, plus the opportunity to volunteer. Membership fee will remain at $60 per calendar year, which runs through January 1st, 2025. As a Member you will receive a car decal giving you Park entry for calendar year 2024. Your Friends of Hunting Island membership is tax deductible and decals cannot be replaced if lost or stolen. Decals must be affixed to the drivers side interior windshield for gate entry.
